This 67-year-old production follows the harrowing story of the settlers who came to the Blue Ridge Mountains “seeking freedom and escape from British tyranny.” Specifically, this production follows none other than Dr. Geoffrey Stuart, a British physician, his wife, Martha, and their son, Jack. Watch as Horn in the West brings to life the story of Daniel Boone

Experience the hardships they faced and romance as if you were there.
