Dinsmore Homestead Orchard (Boone County, Ky.)


Dinsmore Homestead Orchard (Boone County, Ky.)
"On top of the ridge [near the horse barn,] was the Dinsmore orchard. According to the 1880 census the farm had approximately one thousand apple trees and one hundred peach trees. The documentation left by James and Julia Dinsmore indicates that they also planted cherry, quince, plum, and pear trees. A tenant house was located on “Cherry Hill” and the cistern from this homesite is still visible from the hiking trail." --Cathy Callopy
