The Dinsmore Homestead is located at 5656 Burlington Pike (Kentucky Route 18), 6.5 miles (10.5 km) west of Burlington, Kentucky and was completed in 1842. In 1839, James and Martha Dinsmore purchased approximately 700 acres (2.8 km2) in Boone County, Kentucky. He and his family settled there, growing grapes, raising sheep and growing willows for a basket-making business.

In 1987, the Dinsmore Homestead Foundation purchased the home and approximately 30 acres (120,000 m2) to preserve the site. A collection of nearly 90,000 pages of family letters, journals and business records have been preserved on microfilm for use at the Dinsmore Homestead.

The home and grounds are open to the public.
