in 1972, the Mercer complex was sited in a less populated
western section of Pennsylvania north of Pittsburgh.
Water Gap on the other side of the state, Mercer was an
early example of the "Mansard" style that originated
in California. However unlike its eastern cousin at the Gap,
it was built only with a Mansard lobby and its Restaurant
employed the circa 1960s designed "T" type layout
with a cathedral ceiling.
