Daniel Boone has been saved and installed in my back yard.

Daniel Boone is still there in 2018, but those shops are due for a razing for development. The shops are fun antique stores -- worth the visit if you like browsing through them.

Not really worth the stop in my opinion. Roadside America has much more fun things to see.

Giant Daniel Boone is standing tall! The shopping center is perhaps not the most bustling, but he is guarding his post. In a dark ironic twist, across the street is a steakhouse under construction with a full sized plaster Native American on the roof.
