The Daniel Boone Memorabilia Collection

The Daniel Boone Memorabilia Collection represented a lifetime of collecting for Ray Buckberry. The Bowling Green, Kentucky native collected all things Boone. Realizing his collection had gotten to large to be stored comfortably in his home, Buckberry donated the collection to The Fort Boonesborough Foundation so that it could be enjoyed by Fort visitors.

The pieces range from a limited edition bust of Daniel Boone to coloring books and lunch boxes from the Fess Parker TV Series. Prints, posters, children’s toys, coffee mugs and more now line the walls in one of the cabins at the fort.

Although the fort recognizes that not all of the pieces are historically accurate in their depiction of Boone - it is a complete look at the impact Daniel Boone had on the American public, through TV shows, movies, books and promotional items.
