After my visit to the National Clock Museum, I traveled to Reading, PA. From Reading to home. During my travel, I came across the Daniel Boone Homestead. I need to go back because I only had 15 minutes before they were closing. I quickly drove down the road and shoot these buildings. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get to the Boone home.
