History of American Flag Making, Sewing Circle at the Daniel Boone Homestead

The Daniel Boone Homestead Associates are excited to announce the start of their Monthly Sewing Circles on the first Saturday of every month. Each month will feature a different topic. Did you ever wonder who made the first American Flag, or how many stars and stripes were on it? Join us at the Homestead to learn this and other facts about American Flag making. The group will meet at the Visitor Center on Saturday, July 1 at 10:00am. Please bring along a project of your choice (knitting, cross-stitch, quilting, etc.)

There is no fee to participate in the sewing circle or to tour the Visitor Center. Guided Boone House tours incur the following admission fees: Adults $10.00, Seniors (65+) $8.00, Youth (6-17) $5.00.  Children 5 and under and DBHA members are free. Please no pets and no smoking.  Please contact us at [email protected] or 610-582-4900 with any questions. The program is sponsored and run by The Daniel Boone Homestead Associates.

The Daniel Boone Homestead is the birthplace of the famed frontiersman, born in 1734.  The Boone House, constructed in three stages throughout the eighteenth century, is a 10-room stone structure fully furnished to the period and situated on 579 acres of rolling countryside.  The Daniel Boone Homestead is located halfway between Reading and Pottstown, one mile north of Rt. 422 near Baumstown. The Homestead is owned by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, and daily historic operations are run by the Daniel Boone Homestead Associates, a local, nonprofit organization.  If you would like more information or would like to make a donation, please contact the Daniel Boone Homestead at 610-582-4900.
