Bishop White House
William White became the first consecrated bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church of America during the American Revolutionary War. He was the rector of the historic Christ and St. Peter's Churches—a very public and important position for the era. White then went on to become the Bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church of Pennsylvania. The Bishop was a beloved Philadelphia figure, in large part due to his charitable church work. His Federal style home was built in 1787 and stands today in Independence Park at the nexus of Old City Philadelphia. Around 150 books from the bishop's personal library are on display along with his original bed and personal affects. George Washington dined here in November of 1798. The home was White's abode until his death in 1811.
