Historic Signs Placed in Village of VincentownSawMillParkSign

Two historic signs have been placed in the Village of Vincentown to identify locations of historic significance. The first has been placed along Race Street across from the Mill Dam and the Billy K. Haines Schoolhouse. It identifies the location of the early saw mill along the Rancocas Creek in Vincentown. The saw mill was one of several in the area operated by Joseph Burr, an early developer of Vincentown, whose home on 52 Mill Street is one of the most historic homes in Vincentown.

The other sign has been placed at 17 Mill StreetVincentown-sign-cut-out to the left of the historic Vincentown-Tabernacle Telephone Building, now the headquarters of the Southampton Historical Society. Both signs were commissioned by the Southampton Historical Society.
