The Boonslick region of Missouri has a long history of accommodating travelers whether on the Missouri River or along old Indian trails. It gets its name from a salt spring in Howard County where Daniel Boone's sons, Nathan and Daniel, developed a salt mining business.  They took advantage of one of the Indian trails as they traveled to and from St. Charles. This trail came to be known as the Boonslick Road.  The Missouri River was a "highway" for the early Spanish and French explorers and fur traders, and it was the route used by Lewis and Clark in 1804-1806.  With the coming of the steam boat era there were new opportunities for travel through this Boonslick country. The last steam boat went up the river in 1888, the same year our guest house was built. In 1874  a bridge for the MKT rail line was built over the Missouri River. This rail line, known as the Katy, linked St. Louis, Kansas City, Dallas/Fort Worth, Waco,San Antonio, and Galveston/Houston. Now 240 miles of this rail line is the Katy Trail State Park. The Guest House is just a block from where the trail crosses the Missouri River.  Highway 40, known as Main Street of America, which spanned the entire nation, goes right in front of the Guest House. In Missouri most of Highway 40 is now Interstate 70 ,but there is still a section from the Midway exit west of Columbia to Boonville. The famous Pete's Cafe on Highway 40 was just a block south of the guest house.  The old  MKT railroad, the  Missouri River, and highway 40 still provide routes for boaters, bikers, and tourists in the Boonslick region. A night's stay at Boonslick Guesthouse is a great way to experience this historic region of our country
