Fonthill, built between 1908 and 1910, is a testament to Henry  Mercer's vivid imagination. He designed it, "room by room, from  the interior, the exterior not being considered until all the rooms  had been imagined and sketched," Mercer wrote. The result was  spectacular. The structure is distinctly etched in the historically  significant architecture of Doylestown, Pennsylvania and the  collective memory of generations of visitors.
