Inscription.  "Roselawn", formerly known as the Belcher Mansion, was the original site of the Hotel Eagle which burned in 1866. The land was then purchased by Susan Belcher and a house erected out of limestone from the Campbell Quarry, as limestone would never burn. As the house stands today, it has original marble fireplaces, glass chandeliers, stencils, pocket shutters and doors. The Belcher's called it Roselawn because of the extensive rose gardens.
 
Erected by Cherry Valley Chamber of Commerce.
