Ross's Landing is the former name of Chattanooga, Tennessee. It was named for John Ross, the Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation. In 1816 Ross settled at the site along the Tennessee River above Chattanooga Creek and established Ross's Landing as a trading post. Ross also operated a swing ferry across the river that was anchored on McClellan Island.
In 1837–1838 Cherokee removal began, known as the Trail of Tears. The Cherokee were driven from their homes in several southeastern states and were relocated at various camps, including Ross's Landing, for expulsion to Oklahoma. As a result, the name of Ross's Landing was changed to Chattanooga by the U.S. Post Office in 1838.
Today, Ross's Landing has been memorialized as a river park on the banks of the Tennessee River where the city of Chattanooga was established.
