John Ross House, Rossville, Georgia

According to a dendrochronlogy study conducted for the Georgia Chapter of the Trail of Tears Association by Dr. DeWeese, the John Ross House in Rossville, Georgia was in all likelihood constructed in 1816. A stop at the home on Monday, July 8th, was part of the field trip of the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail Preservation Workshop.

The house has been moved from its original location following the construction of several commercial buildings on the land next to the home.

The following are a couple of shots I took that are associated with the home.
