    Check out the castle before heading to the Moravian Tile works (short walk from a shared parking lot) and then the Mercer Museum (1 mile away).

    Fonthill, home of archaeologist, collector, and tile maker Henry Chapman Mercer, is a mix of Medieval, Gothic, and Byzantine architecture, and an early example of poured reinforced concrete.

    On the guided tour of Fonthill, be sure to ask the docent why Henry Mercer kept a human skull in his study!
