Ripley,OH is not just a charming little river town, it was an important part of social progress in America. In the 1800’s the town was famous for opposing slavery. This was not popular back then, in fact, helping a slave escape was breaking the law.
I just love Ripley, and yesterday, I enjoyed the town while drawing in charcoal.
The first drawing is of the John Parker house. It sits on the Ohio River, and is now a museum where you can learn more about his amazing life.

My second drawing is the view of the Ohio River from Rev. John Rankin’s house. The house sits on a hill with a breathtaking view (as pictured in the photo above) It is also a museum where you can learn more about Ripley’s hero.
