It is the site of the former house of Benjamin Rush that drew us to this place. Rush was the signer of the Declaration of Independence, a physician and politician. He was 67 when he died in Philadelphia of typhoid fever. The house did not survive but we can still enjoy the garden.

Located on the spot where Benjamin Rush's home once stood, it boasts a classic 18th century style garden of brick walls, symmetrical planter boxes, boxwoods etc.. Located next to the Bishop William White's house and overlooking the old Dock Creek in the back, it is a shame his house didn't survive, for he was truly one of the most brilliant of our founding fathers.
