 Located along a rural stretch of Burlington Pike, the Dinsmore Homestead is a living document of the life of a prosperous and cultured [[Boone County]] farm family in the 19th century. ​ In [[1839]] [[Silas Dinsmoor]], a Scottish Presbyterian of New Hampshire, and his nephew, Mississippi planter James Dinsmore, purchased 700 acres of land between the [[Ohio River]] and Middle Creek. ​ Here they established a diversified [[farming|farm]] with sheep, orchards and basket willows, as well as a small vineyard (later ruined by the blight that ravaged the Ohio Valley wine industry). Located along a rural stretch of Burlington Pike, the Dinsmore Homestead is a living document of the life of a prosperous and cultured [[Boone County]] farm family in the 19th century. ​ In [[1839]] [[Silas Dinsmoor]], a Scottish Presbyterian of New Hampshire, and his nephew, Mississippi planter James Dinsmore, purchased 700 acres of land between the [[Ohio River]] and Middle Creek. ​ Here they established a diversified [[farming|farm]] with sheep, orchards and basket willows, as well as a small vineyard (later ruined by the blight that ravaged the Ohio Valley wine industry).
