Daniel Carter Beard Boyhood Home

Daniel Carter Beard, the founder of today’s Boy Scouts of America lived in this home during his youth. The home was built in 1821 and is one of the two oldest buildings in Kenton County. The home still serves as a private residence but today has a brick paved walkway and street surrounding the home as well as a statue depicting Dan Beard standing with a Boy Scout. The home is also a National Historic Landmark.
