Death of the Fox Inn, Mount Royal NJ - now a private residence
Death of the Fox Inn, Mount Royal NJ. The inn was built around 1727. It got its name because the hunters of the Gloucester Fox Hunting Club (1766 to 1818) often gathered at the inn after the chase. This was the first such hunt club in America. The first owner was Christopher Taylor. During the American Revolution it was used for recruiting and as a military headquarters.
