Ross Cemetery

This cemetery was established as a burial ground over 100 years ago.  The land was provided the Cherokee leader Stick Ross, who was also a Cherokee Freedman and a large number of those buried in this gravesite are Freedmen from Cherokee Nation. The cemetery is located on Bliss Avenue in Tahlequah directly across from W.W. Hastings Hospital.
