Beginnings [1]

Incorporated in 1872, Boone is the seat of Watauga County and takes its name from Daniel Boone, a one-time resident. Early efforts were sought to preserve historic trees around Town, including a large-diameter oak located near the site of Daniel Boone's home. By 1907, the Town had a well-established street system with several buildings in the valley and farms located along the edge of the Town stretching to the adjacent steep hillsides.
