‘Squire Boone’s Keep’ in Indiana bicentennial exhibition


Squire Boone's Keep for webMy photograph of one of Indiana’s natural treasures secreted deep within Squire Boone Caverns south of Corydon, Indiana, titled “Squire Boone’s Keep” will be featured in an Indiana bicentennial exhibition throughout July in Terre Haute, Indiana.

I am a descendant of Squire Boone Jr., one of Indiana’s most prominent pioneers and brother of the famous Kentucky pioneer Daniel Boone.

Squire Boone Jr. owned the land above the caverns in Mauckport, Indiana, where he built his home and the first grist mill in 1809 in Harrison County, Indiana. His son, Moses Boone, settled in Putnam County, Indiana, and Moses’ daughter, Susan Boone Rissler, was my great-great-great-grandmother. Moses and Susan are buried in Boone-Hutcheson Cemetery in Putnam County, Indiana.
