Long Description:

This is one of the few markers in town which have nothing to do with Native Americans or a religious structure. Although the historical maker is sponsored by the Indian Mills Historical Society, some maps have this listed as Vincentown and Shamong as well as Indian Mills. These small, unincorporated towns dot the landscape in this part of New Jersey. Access to the marker is roadside in the dusty shoulder. The marker is marked number twenty-six on the Indian Mills Historical Society website. All the signs are green, made of metal and have the historical society name marked at the top in an arc. The sign reads:
