An Ohio Historical Marker was dedicated at the site of the Ripley House at 623 High Street, in honor of Brigadier General Roswell Sabine Ripley 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.
