Celebrating 281 Years of Daniel Boone

Born on November 2nd, 1734, Daniel Boone was an American pioneer and frontiersman who is famous for exploring land that is now Kentucky. Check out this collection of photos featuring our very own Daniel Boone statue that has stood in front of the Keen Johnson building since 1967. Daniel Boone has had a key presence on the #CampusBeautiful for nearly 50 years, bringing students good luck in their own explorations when they rub his golden toe. Happy birthday from #EKU!
