  • Beautiful home, fascinating history, unique all original furnishings and excellent tour guides. This was a spur of the moment recommendation from our Airbnb host that ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. If you're interested in stepping into the past definitely step across the threshold and into the Dinsmore Homestead, you won't be disappointed. The best $7 I spent the entire vacation.
  • Our tour guide, Kathy, was so informative and excited to deliver her knowledge. She was so much fun and so kind. This made the whole experience exceed my expectations. She managed to share her wealth of knowledge about the artifacts in the home, describing the behaviors of the time period and lifestyle of individuals who lived in the homestead, while keeping the 6 children we brought interested and engaged! On short notice, she provided time period games after the tour, and spent a great amount of time showing us now they worked and made is feel so welcomed. I would return because this historic homestead had so many original artifacts, and the many classes offered for teachers cater to a particular areas of study. One could learn something new based on which experience they chose to encounter. But call ahead for this, as they need proper time to prepare and make purchases to accommodate. Thank you Kathy!!
