It surprised me to see that the Mercantile Library was not on the original tour considering the history behind the library. The Mercantile Library was founded in 1835 by merchants and clerks in the area and included as one of its members President William Henry Harrison. Today the Mercantile Library is still a membership driven library and most of the books in its collection come from those members. The library not only holds a great collection of historic books on the area but also holds cultural events such as art exhibits and guest speakers.
