Daniel Boone Amphitheatre/ Horn in the West
The stage and accompanying background was designed particularly to accommodate Hunter's "Horn in the West," a drama set in the era of the American Revolution that has been viewed by over 1.4 million people since it began in 1952. The designers disturbed the existing vegetation as little as possible during construction and were able to incorporate many native plant species in the landscape design.
Upwards of 1.4 million patrons have watched the production since the show opened in the summer of 1952. The Daniel Boone Amphitheater and surrounding grounds also serve as home to Southern Appalachian Historical Association, Hickory Ridge Homestead Museum, and The Watauga County Farmers Market. The Daniel Boone Native Gardens--a striking array of native Appalachian flora-- is also located on the grounds.
