The Shippen-Wistar House at 238 S. 4th Street at the corner of Locust Street in the Society Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia was built in 1765 for William Shippen, a leading physician of the time, who gave it to his son, possibly as a wedding present. The entrance to the house is on Locust Street. (Source: Philadelphia Architecture: A Guide to the City (2nd ed.))
