Manners and Policies

The Historic Daniel Boone Home at Lindenwood Park preserves and protects each of its historic buildings located on the site. Many of the buildings contain artifacts and antiques that cannot be replaced and must be handled with special care. These items are presented to tour groups to help educate and teach this rich history. The staff of the Boone Home and St. Charles County Parks asks all visitors follow a few simple rules to help preserve these buildings.

  • Food and beverages are not allowed inside the Boone Home or any building in the village.
  • Smoking is strictly prohibited inside any of the buildings.
  • No glass bottles are allowed on the premises.
  • Please do not touch any objects inside the Boone Home or buildings in the village unless given permission by a Boone Home Interpreter.
  • Photography is allowed throughout the site, but flash photography indoors or during special events is prohibited.
  • Please turn all cell phones and electronic devices to vibrate or off while on tour.

Photography and Video Policy

Photography is allowed throughout the park. However, park staff asks that no flash photography be used inside any historic buildings or during evening special events. The flash is disruptive to tours and programs and also can cause damage to historical objects in preservation. Photographs are permitted outside for personal use as long as the act of taking photos does not interrupt the ongoing activity.

The St. Charles County Parks Department has a Professional Photography Policy (PDF). Professional photographers seeking to take portraits, group photos, or conducting a photography project for a profit need to submit a request through the St. Charles County Parks Department by using the Special Authorization Form (PDF). The Special Use Permit named in the policy has been superseded by the Special Authorization Form.

Pet Policy

Pets are allowed on the premises, but are not allowed inside the buildings. Dogs must be on a leash at all times. Please kindly pick up after your pet. Trash receptacles and pet waste bags are located in designated areas of the park.

If you have questions regarding this policy, please call 636-949-7535 or email Parks.
