Marthasville has its very own historian, Ralph Gregory. At 104 years old, he not only knows the history—writing several books about the town— he’s lived it.
Daniel Boone and his family are closely tied to the town’s history. First settling a few miles from Marthasville, Boone and his wife officially moved to the city in their 60’s. Boone’s remains were interred in the town for a time. The city has been called, “the last home of Daniel Boone.”
