Doylestown has been around as a town for over 200 years and many of the buildings standing today date back to the 1700 and 1800s. The Doylestown Historical Society has done an excellent job at preserving the old buildings that have now been turned into shops, restaurants, and yes a Starbucks! The County Theatre, which opened in 1938, has not only been preserved, but is still in use today, showing mostly art house films, with the occasional big budget thrown in.
Henry Mercer was also a long time resident, and he not only built his Tileworks and home in Doylestown, but he also built the Mercer Museum, which is an imposing castle-like building made entirely of cement!
Here are some photos I took this past March while walking around town on the first warm day we had after the worst winter ever! Enjoy!
