Missouri county outlinesThe county of Boone was formed on 16 November 1820 as a territorial county emerging from the vastly larger territorial county of Howard and for a time being known as part of "Boone's Lick Country". This county was named in honor of the famous Kentucky explorer, Daniel Boone, who spent his latter years in eastern Missouri. Note that the early records of the area use both spellings: Boone and Boon. For a longer history on the founding of Boone County, click here.
