As well as being part of both the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas, Mercer County’s concentrated population and the presence of a major city — Trenton — give the county its own metropolitan statistical area. Mercer gained fame in 1938 during Orson Welles’ famous “War of the Worlds” broadcast, when thousands of radio listeners mistook Welles’ fictional re-enactment of the classic H.G. Wells science fiction novel for an actual alien invasion of Earth. And while the threat of extraterrestrial conquest is fairly low (at least, we all hope it’s fairly low), the threat of a compromised foundation is very real for any homeowner. Hydrostatic pressure can build up under your home, cracking your basement walls and causing leaks that can lead to structural damage and black mold problems.
