Betsy Ross House Philadelphia PA I visited there recentl visited and was surprised how close her house and Ben Franklin's home were. Lovely place to visit.

Declaration House ~ Philadelphia. In 1776 Thomas Jefferson rented rooms at the Declaration House. This is where he wrote the Declaration of Independence.

Philadelphia is the home to the Liberty Bell, an icon of American history. A common myth is that "Pennsylvania" is misspelled on the bell, but in fact, the state's name hadn't a common spelling at the time the bell was forged--"Pensylvania" was considered an acceptable alternative.

Independence Hall ~ Philadelphia, Pennsylvania- been here many times! Love my historical city Philly!
