In the age where commercialism is the order of the day, Ruth Quayle Boone's generosity is unequaled. This lady donated 16-acre (6.5 hectares) of land to the city, so that the city council can build a historic park commemorating the death of her husband, Travis Moore Boone. After Ruth died in 1998, the City also placed a memorial in her name. This farm park is literally divided into to halves; the northern area features Boone House, a barn, storage unit and other structures that belonged to the Boone's. The Glass House Museum occupies its southern part. The Forest Home Farms has a farmers market and weekly tours that take you through the entire site.
