Can you say, "Demisemiseptcentennial or how about quartoseptcentennial? Well if you can't, it is quite understandable. If a centennial is 100 years and other familiar "centennials" are easily recognized, how do we represent 175 years? The answer lies in the above tongue twister terms. Bottom line: Mercer County celebrates its 175th anniversary in this year of 2013. I will be posting Mercer County related material on this website during the celebratory year. Hopefully, these posts will survive the ages and be available to future generations.
