Cathy Collopy, director of the Dinsmore Estate will provide September’s program regarding the men and women that worked on the Dinsmore Farm. See the excerpt below regarding the history of the Dinsmore Farm provided by the Densmore Farm website (www.dinsmorefarm.org):
The Dinsmore Farm is a former homestead that has been converted into a museum. It offers visitors the opportunity to witness 180 years of history on a Kentucky farm and learn about the intriguing stories behind the buildings, the land, the artifacts, and the people who lived there1.
The farm was originally purchased in 1839 by Silas Dinsmoor, a Scottish Presbyterian from New Hampshire, and his nephew James Dinsmore, a Mississippi planter2. The museum houses many of the original furnishings, clothing, china, artwork, and books that adorned the house during the mid-19th century3. It provides a unique glimpse into the life of a prosperous and cultured Boone County farm family in the 19th century
