"He'll live wherever boyhood pitches tent beside a stream and fire is made by friction and coffee needs no cream."

Edgar A. Guest

Daniel Carter Beard spent much of his youth in the
house behind this statue. He played in the nearby woods
and along the banks of the Ohio and Licking Rivers where he developed keen interests in nature and outdoors.

Working as a civil engineer in Cincinnati and later in
New York. Beard observed the plight of inner city boys
to help them, he formed the "Sons of Daniel Boone," which merged with others in 1910 to become the Boy Scouts of America.

"Uncle Dan", as he was known by boys everywhere, became one of the organization first national commissioners and was named its only Golden Eagle.
