I love that they are working harder to preserve this area and the wildlife. They have done a lot to the landscaping and layout in the past year and it was truly an improvement. Not much attention was given to the area before and now...More

Family stopped to see the home of John Ross. Not in the best neighborhood but interesting to see to say the least. Was not open to the public so getting pictures isn't easy.

It's worth visiting. This is the home of Chief John Roos, leader of the Cherokees. There's a pond and park nearby. Very peaceful and quaint. Not a bad place for a picnic.

Stopped by for a few minutes because I like local history. Stopped on a Thursday when it is supposed to be open from 10-2 (I think it was) but no one was there. It is locked behind a gate/fence but you can still get pictures....More

Was a favorite spot when I was a kid but now, 40 years later, the entire area is run down. Seems the Rossville City government has stopped caring.

John Ross was an important person and member of the Cherokee Indians. This log cabin was his home. I'm not sure when you can actually view the home itself, but it sits in a quiet corner of the city alongside a large stone walled pond...More
