BOONE COUNTY — Anyone who's driven around rural Boone County will tell you there's no shortage of "for sale" signs. Small estate tracts of two, three, five or 10 acres with attractive building sites seem to be available most everywhere. It's no secret that they're popular. Rural property for years has been broken up into smaller tracts, where people can build homes with no neighbors in sight and enjoy a small piece of the country.
