When I was camping in Doylestown a few years ago, I woke up in the wooded lot on route 313, walked up the path and saw a huge castle with a bridge in front of me, an unusual sight. This was around 2002. You wonder the meaning of these things so I paid $7.00 for a tour. I find the structure of Fonthill interesting and would wonder it's meaning. I lived in Chalfont, so I wondered if it is named after the font part of Chalfont. It is on Route 313 which is the counterpart to route 309 so I wonder if it is 'Nazareth Pike' instead instead of Swamp Road. Maybe Swamp Road should use what 309/Bethlehem Pike did to make itself more apparent. It reminds me of Scotland. I had a storage room around 2002 on Old Easton Highway and spent a lot of time around Fonthill and grew somewhat attached to it. I see they permit camping there by permit. I never saw another camplot offered except that one while there. Cross Keys must have been meant to be an unusual and different type of place though it became overwhelmed. When I left the area, I left from there. Someone should know or research why they put buildings like that there-given 309 connected King of Prussia with the Liberty Bell. Maybe they would understand happenings moreso. If I saw the liberty bell with 309, Philadelphia and Bethlehem/Nazareth creating Pikes to carry it all in Doylestown, I would start printing different news articles.

Pros: Unusual even for Doylestown-every innate citizen should look at it.

Cons: police still don't care it's a camplot.

A popular place for weddings. A concrete castle and next to it, the famous Moravian Tile Works. A the limits of early 20th century Concrete Baroque arcitecture. Really next! Check out the Tile Works Tour ... and gift shop.

Fonthill is perhaps the most unique and fascinating museum this side of the Atlantic. The building's architecture and collection reveal the Henry Mercer's mission that it is important to preserve and undestand the history of all cultures.
