1. The Historic Village of Mount Rose Marker
Inscription.  Originally known as Stout's Corner, Mount Rose emerged as a village in the 1820s. By 1880 it boasted a school, post office, sawmill and several shops. It was perhaps best known as a center of applejack whiskey production. Two distilleries operated here into the early part of the 20th century. The office building of the former Mount Rose Distillery still remains and was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.
 
Erected 1999 by Hopewell Township Historic Sites Committee.
