“Moravian Tile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Step back in time. Watch them do things the old fashioned way. The structure itself is something to see. I have gone many times over the years and purchased many tiles. Worth the time to see.

“Refined decorative items and great education service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This a great local shop for us to get gifts and stuff for the home. These aren't shiny tiles with pictures of butterflies and puppies. The tiles are molded in 3 dimensions and hand painted with subtle warm colors. Tiles can be set on plate hangers individually or installed in groups on a wall or fireplace or backsplash for a detailed refined and old-world look. There are several themes that can be grouped together and utilitarian tiles such as candle holders and trivets.

“Interesting Tile Works”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

The tour of the house is amazing; definitely not an ordinary house. The tiles are beautiful. You can buy tiles in the gift shop for your home projects.

“Weird History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Very eccentric American History. Interesting and quirky. Love it.
Henry Mercer had an odd way of looking at things and an even odder way of making tiles. I don't really like his tiles, but I love that he was able to build this architecturally bizarre structure in order to produce what he loved.

“Amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

I have been there twice and I saw something different both times. You have to see this to believe it. It is like going back in time. I really enjoyed meeting the artists an they answer your questions.
