Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Physick House

Physick House

Dr. Philip Syng Physick, physician to 19th-century elite, also treated victims of the Yellow Fever epidemic of 1793. While the artifacts and medical equipment designed and pioneered by Dr. Physick are fascinating, the melodrama of his personal life is what makes a tour of his home so captivating.
