The Physick House in Society Hill

The Physick House located at 321 S. 4th Street in Society Hill is a historical mansion from the late 18th century was home to Philip Syng Physick. He was a Philadelphia born American physician. In 1793 as the Yellow Fever epidemic swept through Philadelphia, Dr. Physick stuck around to treat victims. He has been called “the father of American surgery”.  In the late 1960’s the house was restored and donated to the Philadelphia Society for the Preservation of Landmarks. Today this mansion remains a National Historic Landmark and serves as a museum to locals and tourists. The house even has a garden that replicates one from the 19th century.
