The Bucks County Historical Society gives daily guided tours of the amazing structure that was once the home of Henry…More Chapman Mercer. Constructed of fireproof concrete, the home was designed and built by Mercer circa 1910. The design borrows from a range of European styles that Mercer became familiar with on his travels abroad, including Gothic, medieval and Byzantine. The many tiles featured inside and outside the home were a kind of showcase of the many products produced by his nearby Moravian Tile Works.
