One and a half miles north was the home of Reuben Ross, who came to Montgomery County in 1807. By 1808 he was leading numerous Baptist churches in middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky. Contributing significantly to the settlement of the area, Ross organized and pastored four churches that still exist today. He influenced the culture and morals of the region through 62 churches with more than 7,000 members.
