One mile north was the estate of Major Thomas Ridley. In the servile insurrection of August, 1831, the houses were fortified by faithful slaves and made a place of refuge for fugitive whites. In this vicinity Nat Turner, the leader of the insurrection, spent the night after his defeat near Courtland, August 23, 1831.
