Ross Bridge—Hoover, Alabama

In 1858, a Carolinian named James Taylor Ross settled in the Oxmoor Valley of Alabama. During the American Civil War in the 1860's, Ross allowed the Confederate States of America to build a railroad supply line through his land. The stone bridge built to cross Ross Creek still stands today.

The residential neighborhoods of the Ross Bridge community now occupy the rolling hills of the surrounding countryside. The Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa is home to the world's third longest golf course, part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.
