Two sites in Boone county to receive historical markers

BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Two sites in Burlington, Kentucky, will receive historical markers this month.

The markers are coming to the Dinsmore Homestead and the Boone County Courthouse.

The Dinsmore Homestead was the family home to James and Martha Dinsmore in 1842 and part of a large antebellum Boone County farm.

The marker at the courthouse will celebrate the city's history and note the county seat's start as Craig's Camp in 1799, and its name change in 1816 to Burlington.

The markers will be the sixth and seventh sponsored by the Boone County Historical Society, and will bring the county's total number of historical markers to 21.
