About Us

Facilities and Capacity

Fonthill Castle was built in the early 1900s as a grand residence for a foremost archaeologist and antiquarian of the time. Renaissance man Henry Chapman Mercer was a person of many talents and pursuits. As a scholar, his life was filled with discoveries and collections, many of which needed a permanent home before this castle’s construction. He was also a renowned ceramist who crafted priceless pieces that are now on display in this location. To satisfy the need for both a fitting abode and showcase area, Fonthill Castle was built to present and house his achievements. The building’s aesthetic is a pleasing mix of various architectural styles, including Byzantium, medieval, and gothic. Up to 270 guests can attend an event at Fonthill Castle, surrounded by its unique ambiance for an unforgettable occasion.

Mercer Museum is also the creation of Henry Chapman Mercer. He endeavored to provide a space for the preservation of soon-to-be relics of Industrial America. Couples will have access to celebratory locations such as the sunken gardens and the museum’s great hall. Up to 180 guests can be accommodated here, making it the ideal spot for an elegant soiree. Wandering through the building’s corridors and rooms, couples and guests will be able to admire items from a bygone era, all displayed in eye-catching, artistic ways.
