The Old Potomac Path
Originally an Indian Trail and traversed by early settlers, it later became the first coach and post road between Northern and Southern Colonies, and was called
The King's Highway
General Washington often stopped here to visit Col. Blackburn. Over this way also passed the Colonial and French Officers and troops at the time of the Battle of Yorktown.
This old road extends for about three miles through Rippon Lodge, where it has been preserved by Wade H. Ellis, present owner of the property.
