Boone's Lick Road Association

The Boone's Lick Road
was Missouri’s first main road to the west. From St. Charles, Bryan and Morrison’s Trading Post sold the precious commodity mined at the salt lick, which gave the Boone’s Lick community its name. Thousands of travelers used the road to reach the Santa Fe Trail as it passed through St. Charles, Warren, Montgomery, Callaway, Boone, and Howard counties.
