What an exciting day! We went on our first field trip of the year with our fourth grade buddies. The first stop on our trip was the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA. Here, we learned about the civil war during a hands-on classroom presentation AND we learned so much about colonial America by exploring the museum's large collection of early American artifacts. After a delicious lunch at Dairy Queen, we headed to our second destination. Fonthill Castle was the personal home of Mercer Museum founder, Henry Mercer. Although we were unable to take pictures inside his residence, we saw some amazing architectural works throughout his abode!
