Henry Mercer had the vision to collect the tools that built America. He was likely viewed as quite an eccentric when he began his quest, but thanks to him he preserved artifacts and tools that you will only read about in history books. The building itself is just as interesting as the collection…
My favorite museum. Really cool place! All types of things hanging off the castle's walls. The Mercer Museum is a history museum of everyday life in America during the 18th and 19th centuries.
Fonthill castle and the Mercer museum offer rotating exhibits and displays in historic Doylestown Borough.

“This "castle" is as fascinating as the man who built it, Henry Mercer. Well worth the time to see his former residence that is one of a kind. Especially spectacular is their Christmas decorations that occur every year in that holiday season.”

“" The Pearl S. Buck House, a National Historic Landmark in Bucks County, PA, was the home of Pearl S. Buck and her family. The beautiful and iconic Bucks County stone farmhouse contains a rich, intact collection from the extraordinary (the typewriter on which she wrote The Good Earth) to the ordinary (a closet full of board games her family played). The grounds of the estate also contain Pearl S. Buck’s gravesite, greenhouse, award-winning gardens, Cultural Center, the Estate Pavilion (which houses special events and weddings), and the Welcome Center (which contains the International Gift Shop, the Exhibit Gallery, and the offices of Pearl S. Buck International). "”
