Through the field of reeds and weeds, this old barn and workshop are the remnants of a farmstead long forgotten. This rural scene was taken in Marthasville, Missouri, a city in Warren County.
The Katy Trail, a 225-mile long bike path, passes through Marthasville, and the original grave of Daniel Boone is located there. In 1845, Boone's remains were disinterred and moved to Kentucky for burial. Resentment in Missouri about the disinterment grew over the years, and a legend arose that Boone's remains never left Missouri. Because of the many wineries from here east to Defiance, Marthasville is considered to mark one end of the Missouri Weinstrasse.
