A tour of Bucks County
We visited the Waterwheel Tavern in Doylestown for a late lunch. We were going to go to a chain restaurant but a last minute changed proved to be an excellent choice.
Baci Ristorante is located in Buckingham in Doylestown Township. It is an Italian Restaurant serving Italian, American and English food as well as an extensive selection of beer.
The Station Taphouse in Doylestown Review – It is located in the old Doylestown Freight Station. We visited for dinner in January 2020.
Vintage Vibes sells retro merchandise. Basically antique pieces wired as lamps and sound systems with vintage style bulbs.
We decided to go out to eat at the last minute on a Saturday. I picked the Hattery Stove and Still pretty much at random. The entire decision took less than a minute … and it was a great choice.
Fonthill Castle was the home of Henry Chapman Mercer. Fonthill is one of three concrete structures build by Mercer. The other two are the Mercer Museum and the Moravian Pottery Works. Mercer mixed and poured the concrete by hand with the help of a couple of men and a donkey.
My GF and I took a trip to the Mercer Museum in April 2017. It’s a fantastic, interesting place to visit. Henry Mercer, a wealthy Doylestown eccentric built the museum to house what he saw as an endangered part of Americana. The solid concrete structure houses about five floors of artifacts.
There is a fantastic statue of a Winged Hussar (Husaria) in the cemetery at Our Lady of Czestochowa as well as a memorial to the Poles murdered by the Soviets in the Katyn Forest.
