The Stotesbury Mansion, a grand Philadelphia landmark, is registered on the National Register of Historic Places. It is currently the home of the Philopatrian Literary Institute. It was built in 1870 by architect Wilson Eyre, Jr. who had been commissioned by Thomas McKean to build a spectacular home for his son, Henry McKean, as a wedding present. Thomas McKean was the namesake and descendant of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.
Since November 1992, the Philopatrians have shared some of their great fortune with Philadelphia by allowing outside affairs to be held at the mansion. Numerous functions including weddings, corporate dinners, meetings and receptions are shared at this historic mansion forever adding to its rich history.
