8-7-2015, Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle in Doylestown
Mercer Museum was personally designed by Mercer to house his collection and it was completed in 1916.
Mercer was impressed by the eclipse of artisanal culture by industrial production, and resolved himself to preserving artifacts of preindustrial life. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Mercer collected pre-industrial hand tools and other implements of the past. He believed that the story of human progress and accomplishments was told by the tools and objects that people used and saw these time-honored crafts slowly disappearing from memory.
