“Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder.”

My time at the Mercantile with Dr. Dixon’s Archaeological Survey class was thoroughly enjoyed. I was able to see the amazing tin ceilings, the incredible wood floors, the narrow, but very neat spiral stair case. I got to see a part of the Mercantile that most don’t usually see. That building, as big as it looks from the outside is actually even bigger inside. There are so many rooms down in the basement/underground. The Mercantile is both architecturally awesome and archaeologically amazing! My time spent there was not something I will forget. It is truly beautiful, both inside and out.
