Mount Pleasant is a historic mansion in Philadelphia , Pennsylvania , atop cliffs overlooking the Schuylkill River . It was built about 1761–62 in what was then the countryside outside the city by John Macpherson and his wife Margaret. Macpherson was a privateer , or perhaps a pirate , who had had "an arm twice shot off" according to John Adams . He named the house " Clunie " after the ancient seat of his family's clan in Scotland . The builder-architect was Thomas Nevell (1721–1797), an apprentice of Edmund Woolley , who built Independence Hall . The house is administered by the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Fairmount Park . It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1974.
