Mercer Museum. This castle is a trip back in time

I had to be in Doylestown this afternoon and since it was such a beautiful day here today I brought my camera along just in case I was inspired ( well yes, I'm always inspired to photograph something!) You know, sometimes when you live in an area that has so much to offer and you see these wonderful places every day you tend to take it for granted and don't really appreciate the scenery as a visitor would.

So, I "visited" Doylestown today, with camera in hand and bring you photos of the Mercer Museum which is a truly amazing structure. This is a six-story, concrete castle completed in 1916 to house Henry Mercer's vast collection of early American everyday objects.

If you ever get a chance to visit, you will be amazed with the treasures on each floor. There is a log cabin also on the property which I show a close up of the window.

Okay now, I really need to get back in the kitchen to do some baking !

  1. Susan,
    I also have passed this amazing concrete castle many times. Today, I read an advertisement for the Doylestown Museums FREE FOR ALL on Sunday April 5th from noon to 5:00pm.The tour includes a free shuttle bus and free admission to tour
    Fonthill, Mercer Museum, Michener Art Museum, and Moravian Pottery & Tile Works. There will be giveaways, raffles and discounts on select museum merchandise. I am going to select some Moravian Tiles for a client for my design business. Sounds like a fun day, and a way for all the locals to enjoy visiting Doylestown's treasures.
