Excavation began on "Cabin Site #1" in St. Charles County, Missouri in the Summer of2011. This site lies above the Femme Osage Creek Valley and is located within a mile of the famous Daniel Boone Homestead where Daniel Boone died and his son, Nathan, lived. It is located in wooded land. Original interest in this site began with archaeological excavation designed to recover baseline data on the homestead. Placed on a flat terrace, the site included evidence of approximately three structures, remains of a two-track road drive, and a stone well. General artifact content included numerous glass and ceramic fragments, shotgun shells, bullet casings, numerous personal effects, and one tin-enameled bucket with approximately 120 bullet holes.
