Castle showcasing pre-industrial tools and artifacts
An imposing towering castle in an area featuring generally lower buildings, the Mercer Museum features themed rooms filled with dramatic displays of tools, folk art and articles used daily before mechanization in early America.
The Mercer Museum was built in 1916 by Henry Mercer to house his collection of tools and artifacts used for preindustrial trades, crafts, agriculture and domestic work. Explore this impressive collection featuring cobblers’ tools, leatherworking hammers, threshing machines, tinsmithing wares or horn and tortoise-shell works.
While visiting, keep an eye for the the old cigar-store statues that adorn the museum, representing famous characters, such as Buffalo Bill Cody.
