Very interesting!

A visit to the Christ Church was a good chance to explore the history of the area at a much slower pace than many of the other nearby attractions.

We came here since we had a couple of hours to kill before our Independence Hall tour started and it was on the way to Elfreth's Alley. This is the church Benjamin Franklin went to and is buried at (the burial grounds are about three blocks away from the church site). We spent about 15 minutes visiting the church and... More

Interesting old church where many of the signers of the Declaration of Independence worshiped back in the day. Kind of cool to sit there and imagine who might have sat there 250 years ago.

Just beautiful! Near the waterfront full of history, Benjamin Franklin's pew is still there and in use as it had for these many hundreds of years. Be sure to have a guide show you around and relate the stories held within as they did over the July 4th weekend for us. It is a hidden jewel.

A walk through Christ Church is like time travel taking you back to the time of the American Revolution. Gives you a sense of wonder realizing the founders of our country were here. Not grand by cathedral standards but grand in history.

This church was a good stop along our walking tour of Philadelphia sites. It was really interesting to see where some of our Founding Fathers attended services. It's a humble little church unlike some of the grand cathedrals that we visited elsewhere. But to be in the place of worship of people who shaped our country was a grand experience.... More
