Plaque text:

From 1820 to 1822 the now varnished village of Mount Vernon, about seven limes east of Lexington at the mouth of the Tabo Creek, was the county seat of Lillard (now Lafayette) County. These stones were probably quarried from the nearby bluff and used as foundation stones in Mount Vernon. In 1927 they were reused for the nearby Ennis Darnell house which later burned.
