Just a few short decades ago, one could wander among the lush forests of Rossville and encounter hardly a soul save a wild animal or two. In fact, evidence of Ice Age-period hunting was discovered in parts of the neighborhood. Within the past several years, however, Rossville has witnessed growth in development while more and more people continue to discover the area and long to escape chaotic city living. Rossville has a rich and storied history. Once home to Native Americans, Rossville was settled by Europeans in the late 17th-century. After slavery was abolished in New York State in the 19th-century, an area called Sandy Ground, a stop along the Underground Railroad, became a haven for freemen who moved there in order to begin life anew. Sandy Ground is now an historical site and local landmark in Rossville. Not unlike much of the South Shore, Rossville is more like a quiet, quaint town than a neighborhood in the boroughs. However, as more development moves into the area, so do additional amenities, which dot the neighborhood's main streets of Rossville Avenue, Arthur Kill Road, Huguenot Avenue, and Woodrow Road. The Grand Oaks Country Club and South Shore Golf Course is situated in the middle of Rossville, convenient to most residential areas throughout the neighborhood.
Rossville is close to a number of public and private schools for K-12 students, as well as institutes of higher learning, such as Wagner College, St. John's University, and the College of Staten Island.
The Staten Island Railway runs to the south, and the closest station to Rossville is the Huguenot station on the other side of Veterans Parkway. The Parkway provides car commuters a quick, nearby way to the Outerbridge Crossing over the Arthur Kill, the waterway that separates New Jersey from Staten Island. The West Shore Expressway is the artery that take drivers to the northern part of the island and connects them to the Staten Island Expressway and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. An express buses to Manhattan stop on Rossville Avenue while local buses serve Huguenot Avenue, Arthur Kill Road, Bloomingdale Road, and Woodrow Road.
