About an hour south of St. Louis is the Daniel Boone Homestead. On the grounds...just a few miles from the hustle and bustle of St. Louis is this 18th century Church.
The church is completely restored to it's original state....including a pedal operated pipe organ. The grounds are dotted with fresh air gazebos amid the rolling hills of Missouri...all historically accurate for the times. When we lived in St. Louis, we would always visit the grounds during the Christmas Season. At night, the paths and walkways would be lined with candles that led you inside the church. Once in, the pipe organ would begin and a small country choir would sing Christmas Carols. It truly was an oasis for the one night a year when we were away from the city lights with only candles and a billion bright stars to guide our way. We have been back several times at Christmas since we moved. It is a trip we never tire of.
