Local points of interest in Boone County include The Dinsmore Homestead in Burlington, a look into the past through the lives of the Dinsmore Family and Rabbit Hash, a unique Ohio River hideaway featuring the Rabbit Hash General Store (est. 1831), where the Dog Mayor, Goofey may be found lying around. This quaint community was the focus of the movie "Rabbit Hash, Center of the Universe". The City of Walton has recently purchased the Abner Gaines property, and will establish the Gaines Tavern History Center in this 2 1/2 story brick home that may have been built as early as 1791, but definitely by 1814.
