Rossville, named after Cherokee Indian Chief John Ross, shares a common border with Chattanooga, TN. John Ross resided in this location until the forced removal to Oklahoma in what came to be known as the Trail of Terars.
The home of Cherokee Indian Chief Ross still stands in Rossville today. The restoration of the home began with its dismantling and rebuilding about 150 yards toward Missionary Ridge, still on the original Ross homestead. This was accomplished in 1962.
Rumors of a secret passage also abounded through the years. During the move of the house, a trap was discovered and a short passage explored, but it could not be determined that it led anywhere.
