Just a few short decades ago, one could wander among the lush forests of Rossville and encounter hardly a soul save a wild animal or two. In fact, evidence of Ice Age-period hunting was discovered in parts of the neighborhood. Within the past several years, however, Rossville has witnessed growth in development while more and more people continue to discover the area and long to escape chaotic city living.

History of Rossville

Rossville has a rich and storied history. Once home to Native Americans, Rossville was settled by Europeans in the late 17th-century. After slavery was abolished in New York State in the 19th-century, an area called Sandy Ground, a stop along the Underground Railroad, became a haven for freemen who moved there in order to begin life anew. Sandy Ground is now an historical site and local landmark in Rossville.
