Mercer Museum & Fonthill Castle

Located in Doylestown, PA, Fonthill Castle was the home of Henry Mercer Chapman (1856-1930). Archaeologist, anthropologist, ceramist, scholar, and antiquarian, Mercer built Fonthill Castle in 1908 as his home and as a showplace for his collection of tiles and prints. The castle is an eclectic mix of Medieval, Gothic, and Byzantine architectural styles and is a significant early example of poured reinforced concrete. Both the castle and the Mercer Museum house an extensive collection of decorative tiles made at the height of the Arts and Crafts movement, over 50,000 pre-Industrial tools, ceramics, and other artifacts from throughout the world.
