Built by Captain John Smoot in 1785, Rehoboth was the longtime home of Major Francis Turpin and Francis B.C. Turpin in the 1800s.  Rehoboth is also known as Liberty Hall, the Turpin Place, and the Lee Mansion.  The land known as Rehoboth was once owned by the notable Lee family of Virginia, whose family members include Robert E. Lee and Harry Lighthorse Lee.
