Day-off? No plans? You might want to consider a daytrip to the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA.
Built entirely of concrete, the museum houses thousands of artifacts obtained by archaeologist and scholar Henry C. Mercer — from floor to ceiling and everything in between with boats to carriages and cigar advertisements, to guns and traps and vintage medical instruments.
Mercer believed that “the story of human progress and accomplishments was told by the tools and objects that people used,” according to the museum’s site. Among the 50,000 artifacts that can be seen, some of the oldest include a whale oil lamp that is over 2,000 years old and Native American implements that dates back to 6,000 – 8,000 B.C., the site also said.

Harry Foote Jr., 74, a retired waterman with craggy features, surveys the setting sun gleaming through trees over the fishing boats docked on Armstrong Creek, and remarks, “What killed crabbing this season was that the market dried up. It wouldn’t matter whether we had a hurricane or not. People are broke. Not enough customers. Earlier in the season the crabs were immature. By the middle of September, the crabs are prime, full of meat. September and October were probably our best two months.”
