Ross House

Ross House This historic home is located on Mt. Zion Rd in Union. Local tradition asserts it was built for a physician who intended to use one of the front rooms for his office. Following his bride’s sudden death, however, he sold the property.

The Ross House exemplifies the two-door saddlebag house, with trademark twin doors and center-ridge chimney. A simple Folk Victorian porch shelters the doorways. A frame cellar behind the house bears the date “1878” inscribed in plaster. Also on the property are an English barn, chicken coop and smokehouse.
