Founded in 1792 by George and William Boone, cousins of Daniel Boone, Boonsboro forms a gateway to relevant colonial and Civil War heritage sites including Washington Monument State Park, South Mountain, and Antietam National Battlefield. The C&O Canal Towpath and Harpers Ferry Historical Park are only minutes away, and the proximity to the Appalachian Trail makes Boonsboro a welcome respite for hikers.
