About

130 Swamp Road, Doylestown, PA 18901

The Moravian Pottery and Tile Works, a National Historic Landmark,is maintained as a "working history" museum by Pennsylvania's County of Bucks, Department of Parks and Recreation. Handmade tiles are still produced in a manner similar to that developed by the pottery's founder and builder, Henry Chapman Mercer (1856-1930). Mercer was a major proponent of the Arts & Crafts Movement in America. He directed the work at the pottery from 1898 until his death in 1930.

Come visit and tour our historic museum. Check our catalogue to see the many tiles we have for gifts and installations such as kitchens, fireplaces, floors and walls.

Tours are offered every half-hour and consist of a 17-minute video and a self-guided walk through the facility. Visitors will see original installations, various displays, and selected aspects of current tile production.
