Ross Bridge History

The James Taylor Ross Bridge stands as a testament to good will
& perseverance

The History of Ross Bridge dates to 1858, when a Carolinian named James Taylor Ross was so struck by the beauty of the Oxmoor Valley that he settled here to farm and raise his family. During the Civil War, he allowed Southern forces to build a railway supply line through his land.

Part of the construction was a massive stone bridge built to span Ross Creek. The war is long since over, but the weathered bridge still stands as a testament to perseverance.

With luck, the Ross Bridge will continue to serve as inspiration for many future generations that reside at Ross Bridge.
