Henry Chapman Mercer’s 165th Birthday


Celebrate Henry Chapman Mercer’s 165th Birthday with the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown. Enjoy guided tours of the 17-room Victorian mansion built by Judge Henry Chapman in 1844.

Explore 25 years of the Chapman family’s tenure at the house, during which the family grew, the Civil War raged, and telegraph, train, and gas lighting arrived for the first time in the rapidly modernizing hamlet of Doylestown. 

Discover Victorian birthday customs, and in honor of Henry’s 165th, your tour will end with a birthday cupcake!
