  1. I have never seen any siteings at the Bishop White House, but I did work on the restoration of the Bishop White House in the 1960’s I believe. It was an interesting experience to see all that goes into a restoration job

    • This place is the real deal! I am a tour guide in Philadelphia. I’ve had two very interesting experiences while telling the tales of the bishop White House to guests. I’ve also had guests take really interesting/creepy pictures of this home. I attached one of those photos. This is one of the windows from the back of the house.

  2. I have many photos that have captured ghosts looking out the window particularly a woman with children can be seen this is all the time
