Nathan Boone, youngest son of Daniel Boone, made his mark as an explorer and military officer in the early 1800s. In the summer of 1843 Boone led and exploration force of Dragoons from Ft. Smith, Arkansas, into the western praries. During this reconnaissance the Boone party visited the salt flats on the Cimarron River west of Freedom, Oklahoma on July 1st, 1843. This is now the location of the Cargill solar salt production facility.

The mural was painted by Robbie Pierce and Don Prechtel in 2011
