Built between 1908 and 1910, this glorious mansion was designed by Mercer himself, from the inside out. The exterior was not even considered until all the rooms had been imagined and sketched.

Today Fonthill is a National Historic Landmark. Constructed entirely of hand-mixed concrete, the house contains 44 rooms, 32 stairwells, 18 fireplaces, and more than 200 windows. A Guided Tour reveals more than 900 prints and other objects that Mercer gathered throughout the world. The lavish interior surfaces display many of Mercer's original decorative tiles.

Tours are educational, giving a unique insight to the world-class collection that Mercer surrounded himself with. Great for all ages, individuals and Groups.
