Rouse Hill (5,168 ft.)

"Named for Dezaret W. Rouse, a native of Utah who arrived in this general area in the early 1880's. He was a homesteader in Blackburn Canyon, gold miner (he filed on 11 locations during the years 1883 to 1888), farmer and beekeeper. He is known to have been associated with a neighbor S. H. Meek in a joint filing for rights to conduct water in Baptiste Canyon to their homesteads (1886). Together with John Rouse, he located mining claims. in a mountainous area above Bautista Creek, five miles north of his home (1900). He finally abandoned his homestead and claims. Rouse Canyon also bears his name.

Name first appears on AMS Hemet quad (1942).
