Holy Trinity Church

In 1797, Holy Trinity was established as the country’s first Catholic orphanage to tend to many of the children left homeless and parentless by the Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1793.

On the Spirits of '76 Ghost Tour, you'll learn all about what caused the Yellow Fever Epidemic, about how doctors including Benjamin Rush and Philip Syng Physick stayed in Philadelphia in an attempt to cure the dieseased, and how legend has it that many of the spirits of the thousands who perished in the Yellow Fever Epidemic still haunt the City of Philadelphia to this day in the story of the "Evil Epidemic."
