April 11, 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued Proclamation 3715: Designating The Cumberland National Forest, Kentucky, As The Daniel Boone National Forest.

"Among the 186 million acres of natural forest and grasslands, none is more beautiful nor more strongly associated with the spirit and the symbol of Daniel Boone than the Cumberland National Forest in the State of Kentucky. It is fitting and appropriate that being so associated with his spirit, it should also carry his name."

April 11, 1966, 80 Stat. 1776 within vol. 80 - 89th Congress, 2nd Session, 1966.
