The guide knew a lot not only about the building, but also the medical practices of the time, and the use of various herbs and chemicals. Learned a lot.

A great tour indeed! The guides spoke in colonial terms and added several key notes of historical importance into their presentation. Lots of humor was tossed in and the presentation was very impressive.

Great spot. The interpreters were great. They were both vey knowledgable and fun to interact with. The tour was about 30 minutes and gave some real insights into colonial medicine. Hugh Mercer was a highly regarded Revolutionary War general who was killed at the battle of Princeton. This is a good stop for adults and kids.

The Hugh Mercer Shop was very interesting. The presentation was well done and in a tone which was to be a replica of the 1770's. The house is unique and the stairwell is for the well balanced. We thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and the unique medical habits of the early days.
