Old Philadelphia is lovingly preserved and celebrated in this historic church. The architecture is one of the best examples of its type that I have seen.

I only went to the graveyard area, where Benjamin Franklin is buried. It is a pretty cool little detour. I only spent ~20 minutes there but it was interesting to see 200 year old graves and read the story markers placed there detailing the interned peoples lives. And it was only $2.

Very nice church and grounds. Reminded me of the Old North Church in Boston. Beautiful wood baptismal font, the feeling and atmosphere makes you realize you are in a special place. The history it holds is impressive and you feel it.

Pretty neat to walk the same stones and sit in the same pew as George Washington and other important historical figures. The church is small and rather plain, but that's not the point. You're here for the authenticity and the history, and it's free!

We visited Christ Church and the cemetary last week with our band. This place is magnificent! One of my favorite stops on our tour!
