Description

Henry Chapman Mercer, an archaeologist, collector, and tile-maker, designed and built this six-story reinforced concrete structure to house his collection of tools and other everyday artifacts from pre-industrial America. Mercer chose concrete to protect his collection from fire; it is used in every aspect of the building's construction, right down to the window muntins. Completed in 1916, the museum today contains over 50,000 items and is open to the public.

This interior view portrays the grand scale of his unique building and collection: even the roof of this central chamber is used to store artifacts.
