Built in 1832, Routt House was the first stage coach stop on the New Albany-Vincennes Trace in the mid-1800s.
It remained in the same family for over 135 years, and has weathered the tests of times, including earthquakes. Besides the cemeteries, this home is all that is left of the town of Mount Pleasant. Routt House is on the Indiana State Register of History. Located two-tenths of a mile south of State Road 550.
