2.6.12: Facebook cover picture.

Located off Swamp Rd in Doylestown, PA the Moravian and neighboring Fonthill are the amazing creations of Henry Mercer. His love of artisan crafts drove a life long passion for collecting and preserving artifacts and tools that were made by hand. His own style of tile making grew in popularity and what once was made in a tiny shed grew into the Moravian Tile Works you see above. His Fonthill home neighbors the factory on the property (and is a gorgeous location for a wedding and I hope to get to shoot there someday soon!) and his extensive collection over flowed the "garage" and home and soon demanded it's own space, which is now the Mercer Museum. The entire property is open to the public and is a great space to hike around.
