Old John Ripley
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Old John was the Civil War horse of General Edward H. Ripley of the 9th Vermont Infantry. The General rode into Richmond on Old John in April 1865. The land where the Sugar and Spice restaurant is now located was the General's home and when Old John died he buried him on the property in front of a very large rock. The grave can now be found amongst the trees at the far end of the parking lot.
