Thaw House

Rittenhouse District 19

At 1710 Spruce, next to the church, is the mansion in which Harry K. Thaw — remember his love triangle with Evelyn Nesbit and Stanford White ending with a shooting atop Madison Square Garden? — once lived. Today home to a law firm, it has been lovingly restored, and inside are beautiful woodwork, pediments and fine fireplaces — all the accoutrements of a gracious age.
