“A must see!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

Beautiful church with a great history. The docents are knowledgeable and don't impose. Be sure to ask which pews Ben Franklin and other notable families sat in.

“The real deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

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.

“Graveyard Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

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.

“Must stop in to see history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Sit in Washington's pew”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

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!
