Founded in 1695, this has been the spiritual home of many of the Founding Fathers and first families of Society Hill. Benjamin Franklin was one of the members here, and it’s probably another place where George Washington slept. As the “Nation’s Church” they are a member of Independence National Park and give free tours daily. The tour is well worth it. It’s a beautiful building, modeled on the work of Christopher Wren. The 196-foot steeple was added in 1751-54, after a lengthy fundraiding drive led by Franklin. Benjamin Franklin and his wife are in the Christ Church Burial Ground at 4th and Arch Sts, two blocks north and two west.
