This historic home is now a museum. Once the home of “Father of American Surgery” Philip Syng Physick, it was built originally in 1786 by wine importer Henry Hill. Rumor has it that Physick’s wife haunts the yard near the spot where a beloved tree, which was chopped down shortly before her death, once stood.
