Rippon Lodge is a colonial-era home and farm located along Neabsco Creek. In the 18th century, waterways were crucial for transportation and trade, serving in the absence of any developed highway systems. One road that did pass nearby was the King’s Highway. On September 28, 1781, on its way to Yorktown, the American and French army’s wagon train traveled south along the road “passing Blackburn House [Rippon Lodge] on the left.”

Thomas Blackburn, who owned the property from 1757 until his death in 1807, served before the Revolutionary War in the House of Burgesses and at the first four Virginia Conventions. He was a lieutenant colonel and volunteer aide during the war. At the battle of Germantown in 1777, Blackburn received a severe wound that ended his service. He returned home to Rippon Lodge and spent the rest of his life there.
