Lindenwood University’s historic Daniel Boone Home & Heritage Center has announced a significant grant from the Robert J. Trulaske, Jr. Family Foundation.
The gift will support the preservation of several buildings on the Boone Home site in Defiance, Missouri. The preservation projects include roofing, painting, and building repair and restoration. Additionally, the grant will support the installation of wayside exhibitions (educational outdoor signs) throughout the site.
“Grant support from the Trulaske Foundation provides invaluable preservation of our historical site and advances our mission far beyond what we would be able to do without these critical financial resources,” said Dr. David Knotts, dean of the Boone Home. “Building restoration at the Boone Home brings the legacy of Daniel Boone to life. Within the thick limestone walls, stories of a daring man offer a glimpse into family matters, risky adventures and hard-fought battles.”
The Trulaske Foundation has supported preservation efforts at the Boone Home with three previous grant awards.
