This is a very low-key site, with some historical items and an average tour. The upstairs was closed for renovations when we were there, so my opinion is based on that fact. The outdoors are lovely, and the little walk to the old (and augmented by one of the owners) cemetery is interesting. We had spent hours the day before at a site that does not even appear here --- the Weems-Botts Museum and House in Dumfries, Virginia --- and it was the BEST I have ever been to. So, Rippon paled badly by comparison. But don't miss Weems-Botts. Just check the hours at both before you drop in.
