Essential Information

Philadelphia, PA

215-925-2251

Visit the houses overseen by the Society to learn more about these less-familiar historic gems. The Powel House, home to Revolutionary-era mayor Samuel Powel, hosted George & Martha Washington’s 20th wedding anniversary in the ballroom. The Physick House was where Dr. Physick, a prominent 19th century physician & creator of America’s first soda pop, lived. Little girls may recognize the Physick House, because a photo of it was featured in an American Girl book (An Addy Mystery: Shadows on Society Hill). Boys will be intrigued because one of the artifacts is a jar of live leeches. The Powel & Physick Houses host interactive living history programs, Thurs.-Sun. Other Landmarks are Revolutionary War-era houses Waynesborough & Grumblethorpe.
