Ross House

Home of John Ross, first leader of the Cherokee Nation.  Built in 1797 by John McDonald (the grandfather of John Ross). It stands adjacent to Poplar Springs in the center of downtown Rossville. This two-story dog trot style log structure was used as Rossville post office for many years, served as Gordon Granger's headquarters during the battle of Chickamauga, and was a Civil War field hospital.
