Origin of the names "Seat Pleasant" and "Rollins Avenue".

Family lore has it that my great-grandparents--Pinkney and Hester Rollins--lived in a home which was named "Seat Pleasant" (allegedly, the origin of the city's name). The home is believed to have burned down in the 1890s or early 1900s. I'm looking for information on this home, and on the origin of the name "Rollins Avenue".
