I visited the Mercer House because it peaked my interest after seeing the movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil". If you have read the book or seen the movie, one of the employees of Jim Williams was murdered in the house, and it is quite an interesting story. The guide did a good job of telling the history of the house and of Mr. Williams, but they mention very little about the book. They focus on the architecture and Jim Williams. The tour is about 30 minutes long, and you only get to tour the bottom floor. I love to see old houses, but this would not be rated as one of my favorites. It had some unique chandeliers, some paintings, and other memorabilia of Jim William's. Several Movies have been filmed at the house. It has a nice gift shop that is located in the old carriage shop.
