The Riley-Bolton House is a former plantation property of Isaac Riley where Reverend Josiah Henson was enslaved. The size of the plantation has shrunk over time and now just a small lot encompassing the house remains. The site is associated with Josiah Henson, who wrote an autobiography which influenced the book "Uncle Tom's Cabin."
