Located one hour east of Cincinnati is the Historic Village of Ripley, Ohio.  This village of 1,800 people was a major player in the Underground Railroad.  The homes of abolitionists Rev. John Rankin and John P. Parker are located close to the Ohio River which was the dividing line between freedom and slavery.  Eliza of “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” fame crossed the Ohio River in Ripley on her way to freedom.
