The Rankin House was an important stopping point on the Underground Railroad. Built in 1828 by Rev. John Rankin, the home affords spectacular views of the Ohio River. His strong opposition to slavery led to his home being one of the most active underground stations. Over 2,000 slaves stayed here on their way to freedom. There is a small entrance fee.
