“Henry Mercer had the vision to collect the tools that built America. He was likely viewed as quite an eccentric when he began his quest, but thanks to him he preserved artifacts and tools that you will only read about in history books. The building itself is just as interesting as the collection and as a child, this was one of my favorite places. It's a wonderland for kids to explore. My father had antique printing presses that he used to make our family Christmas cards on every year and I am proud that one of his presses is in their permanent collection.”

The building now serves as a museum of religious art and history. Glencairn Museum invites a diverse audience to engage with religious beliefs and practices, past and present, by exploring art, artifacts, and other cultural expressions of faith.

“Event Venue: For over a century, Cairnwood has been hosting wedding receptions within its halls. The tradition began with John and Gertrude Pitcairn opening their home for a marriage celebration in 1896. Today, the Estate is available for sit-down dinners with 200 guests or an opulent stations-style event for up to 275. The graciousness of the Estate provides a setting that departs from the ordinary with endless indoor and outdoor possibilities.
