Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room



Made entirely of reinforced concrete, Fonthill in Doylestown is as eccentric and exotic as its original owner, Henry Mercer, a noted tile-maker, archaeologist, antiquarian, artist and leader in the turn-of-the-century arts and crafts movement. Inside the castle, staircases wind through dozens of rooms and hallways adorned with antique prints, furnishings from around the globe and 14,000 handmade tiles.
