Long Description:

There are a few historic markers which mark businesses. There is a new one for the Pic, on Route 206 and this one for this former general store. The sign is on the property of the pizza parlor, to the mid-rear of the right side. 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. To access the marker use either this parking lot or the one across the street. The marker is marked number nineteen 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:
