Things To Do

Henry Mercer, the 19-century archeologist and industrialist built Doylestown three of its most striking landmarks: Fonthill Castle, a 44-room concrete palace; the Mercer Museum, a six-story repository for pieces that Mercer collected; and Moravian Pottery and Tile Works. All three attractions are worth a visit for history buffs and architecture admirers alike.

The downtown is also home to a number of independent specialty shops. From books at The Doylestown Bookshop, to soaps at Peace Valley Lavender Farm, to oils at Olve Oil Etcetera, Doylestown has all your shopping needs.
