1. The Rosencrantz Heritage Marker
Inscription. Mary Elizabeth Rosencrantz was born in the Hermitage and lived there until she died in 1970 at the age of 85. Unmarried and one of the last descendants of Elijah Rosencrantz who purchased the Hermitage in 1807, she knew the historical value of her home and willed it to the State of New Jersey for use as a museum and park. Here (circa 1890) she poses with a favorite doll near the south veranda of the house.
