No longer in existence, Berkshire was a town in southern Boone County. It was located south of Verona, though its exact location is no longer known. Berkshire had a post office from 1881 to 1914. Well-known families from the area include: the Anderson Family; the McManama Family; the Waller Family; and the Willeford Family.
According to 'Yesterdays' by William Conrad (page 80), the following graffiti once appeared on a barn there: "If Boone County was a mule, Berkshire would be the tail end."
