The Brigadier General Roswell Sabine Ripley, CSA (b. 1823, d. 1887) historical marker was dedicated at the site of his birthplace, the Ripley House (623 High Street, Worthington, Ohio) on September 26, 2004. The marker was removed on August 18, 2017 due to concerns about protests of monuments and symbols of the Confederacy in the wake of demonstrations in Charlottesville, Virginia that turned violent. Ohio Historical Markers identify, commemorate, and honor important people, places, and events which have significance in Ohio history.

Pictured (left to right) are Jerry and Connie Olds (property owners), Mayor Harvey Minton, Scot Mueller (Ohio Historical Society), John Haueisen (local historian), Collin Thomas (past Commander, SCV Ripley Camp 1535), Chet Bennett, M.D. (Camp 1535 member and Ripley biographer), and Gail Robinson (past Ohio Division President of United Daughters of the Confederacy).
