Boone County, formed in 1798 from Campbell County, and named after Colonel Daniel Boone, is located in the northern most part of the state.
It is bordered by the Ohio River to the north and west for a little over 39 miles, which has helped lend to the rich history to be found here.
The county seat, Burlington, has a charming, historic downtown that welcomes residents and visitors alike.
Boone County has a fascinating history to explore from being the birthplace of American paleontology to once having the largest distillery in the state.
