Fountainville


"Fountainville is located in three townships: Doylestown, New Britain, and Plumstead. The village takes its name from the Fountain Inn, whose sign pictured a fountain. The inn was probably named because of the artesian wells that once flowed in the area, some of which rose above the ground like fountains. The hotel, a large, two story stone building on the east side of the intersection, closed in 1857 and became a private residence. The post office was established in 1875 and is still in operation. Fountainville now consists of a few residential and commercial uses at the intersection of Swamp and Ferry Roads. Two of the homes are large, stone structures and the post office and a delicatessen are located in another large building. Swamp Road (Route 313) is quire busy and divides the village in half." [1]
