Travel Tips for Mercer

The Mercer County Courthouse

by VeronicaG

When arriving in Mercer, the first sight that greets you is the Mercer County Courthouse soaring above the town square. Its clock with four faces and elegant bell tower figures largely in its prominent design. The dome is a reproduction of that atop St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City.

The courthouse was designed by the Youngstown, Ohio architect firm of Owsley and Boucherle in the Gothic style. Massive stone pillars mark the main entrance to the building. Construction began in 1909 and it was dedicated on October 11, 1912. It is the third courthouse for the county, two earlier ones having been destroyed by fire.

Early history of Mercer County

by VeronicaG

After the American Revolution continental money had depreciated and soldiers needed to be paid. In March 7, 1780 the legislature passed a law clearing the way for these loyal men to be compensated by gifting them with land.

Although Mercer County was part of the depreciation land territory, it was settled somewhat later due to the 'savage Indians' in the area. Benjamin Stokely, a deputy surveyor under General Brodhead criss-crossed this territory in the execution his duties. He kept a diary* of these days, which has been helpful in understanding the early history of Mercer County.

In time, Stokely states that he was the first resident to permanently settle in this area with his wife on October 14, 1796. He notes that his wife was lonely for female companionship.
