Local Organization Releases Limited Edition Book
The Story of Aldie celebrates Heritage Conservancy’s 25th anniversary of restoration and occupation of historic Aldie Mansion in Doylestown, PA.
Heritage Conservancy, an accredited not-for-profit conservation organization specializing in preserving our natural and historic heritage, is pleased to announce the publication of a historical non-fiction book, The Story of Aldie.
8.5 inches tall and 11 inches wide, with 80+ pages of gorgeous historic and current photos, The Story of Aldie highlights the Mercer family history. Construction of the current mansion and the building’s architectural elements are explored, incorporating never before seen photos of original architectural design sketches. The changes in ownership after Martha Mercer’s death are described, as well as the acquisition and restoration of the building by Heritage Conservancy. President of Heritage Conservancy, Jeffrey L. Marshall, is the author of this exclusive keepsake.
“Coming to work at Aldie Mansion for the last twenty-five years has been a tremendous treat. Seeing a building virtually return from ruin and become a thriving workspace and revered show place has been a testament to the vision of a generation of Heritage Conservancy board members, volunteers, and staff,” said President of Heritage Conservancy, Jeffrey L. Marshall. “It’s also a testimony to the original architectural and artistic vision of the Mercer family. This book is an effort to share our hidden treasure with a broader audience.”
At $39.95, the book is available now for purchase on Heritage Conservancy’s website. The book is also available at Aldie Mansion, 85 Old Dublin Pike, Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
Proceeds from book sales go towards the upkeep and ongoing renovation of the mansion.
