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 (where you get this awesome Perk!), to soaps at Peace Valley Lavender Farm, to oils at Olve Oil Etcetera, Doylestown has all your shopping needs.
