Wilderness Trail

Daniel Boone Marker

Of course, Duffield attracts visitors in its own right. Located along the Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail, Duffield has been a stopping off point for travelers for centuries. Native Americans called the location “Little Flat Lick” but, after Daniel Boone blazed a trail through the wilderness for the Europeans, the new town was renamed in 1818 in honor of Sam Henry Duff who settled the area from North Carolina.

Stop by the Fannon Railroad Museum to see a replica depot that was used in the filming of the movie, “Coal Miner’s Daughter“, along with a variety of railroad memorabilia. Other highlights include three stops on the Daniel Boone Birding Trail and close proximity to Natural Tunnel State Park.
