Hydrocephalic Daniel Boone

Random statue of Daniel Boone. Almost missed it. Not entirely prominent. Not overall spectacular either. Kind of a neat random statue, just passing by, but would not make a special trip to see it (like my sister and I did).

We've always enjoyed the carved raccoon face on the front of this particular Boone's coonskin cap.

Forlorn pioneer statue.

Pioneer sculpture?

There's nothing else here I've found. Perhaps a remnant of previous roadside attraction. We were especially fond of the raccoon face on the hat.
