About the Chronicles
The Chronicles of Boone County have been created to promote public access to local history materials starting with the founding of Boone County in 1799, and moving forward. The project is the result of Boone County Public Library's commitment to furthering Boone County historical research through documentation, preservation and dissemination of information to the public.
The Chronicles are arranged to optimize natural language and keyword searching. However, a general page has been provided to allow for browsing by timeline or by subject.
At this time, the Chronicles timeline only exists through 1853, and research has been completed only through the first half of the nineteenth century. This was done to keep the project better focused. As more research is completed, the Chronicles will continue to grow, and more decades will be added to the timeline.
