Why We Call It Home
The Welcome Home sign, it’s the first thing you see as you enter the grounds of America’s Keswick… A term of endearment to all who enter. In fact, it is inspired by the verbal comments and notes of encouragement we have and still do receive from guests, Colony residents, friends, and even staff.
There’s just something about this place… When I’m here, I’m home… It’s like a second home to us… We feel right at home here… I feel so at home just taking a nap on one of the couches in the lobby…
I’m home… It doesn’t take long before people discover that what they “feel” is the Spirit of God!
The History of America’s Keswick Is “HIS”tory

About the Colony of Mercy
The Colony of Mercy at America’s Keswick was founded on September 25, 1897, by William Raws, as a spiritual restoration center for men who had become addicted to alcohol. Having been miraculously saved and set free while a dying alcoholic, William gave his life to the purpose of reclaiming men who, like himself, had lost everything through the bondage of drink.
