 In its earliest days, [[Boone County]] prospered largely because of the Ohio River that forms its northern and western boundaries. At one time there were six major [[ferries|ferry]] crossings to the opposite shores of Ohio and Indiana, and at least as many shipping points with warehouses. Nineteenth century agricultural activity in Boone County was dominated by largely subsistence [[farming]] but a surplus of goods produced and easy access to river shipping routes provided the opportunity for extra income. In its earliest days, [[Boone County]] prospered largely because of the Ohio River that forms its northern and western boundaries.
