<A careful and detailed search of all known authentic contemporary source materials, both official archives and private manuscript collections, has failed to produce any acceptable historical evidence whatsoever that "the Daniel Boone Homeplace" in Davidson County is a "Historic Site."> The report reaches the following conclusions: <1. That there is insufficient evidence, according to Chapter 210, Session Laws, 1963, to prove that the site specified by the Daniel Boone [Memorial] Association as the "Daniel Boone Homeplace" in Davidson County is a Historic Site. 2. We do not state or aver that Daniel Boone did NOT live on this exact site. We maintain, however, that the site has not been proven to be the "Homeplace" of Boone.> "'The Daniel Boone Homeplace' Davidson County NC: A Report from the Department of Archives and History to the Historic Sites Advisory Committee, April 25, 1966":5,7.
