Event description

Description

Join us as we celebrate the 131st anniversary of the Norris Room fireplace! The Norris Room Fireplace is the highlight of any exhibit that is displayed in the Historical Medical Library. Given to the College of Physicians of Philadelphia in 1888 by George William Childs (1820-1894), the fireplace graced the first free-standing headquarters of the College at 13th and Locust Street. A marvel of concrete construction, the fireplace was moved to the current building upon its completion in 1909.
