Franklin Court

An Old City museum with exhibitions dedicated to Benjamin Franklin.

Franklin Court

During a tour of Old City, walk to Market Street via Third Street. When you reach Market, cross the street and head one block west. Tucked into a location known as Franklin Court is the site of Ben Franklin's former home. All that's left is a recreated structure of metal beams giving a visual approximation of the home's dimensions, and a few glass-encased remains of the original building. It's worth taking a look at these preserved artifacts and reading quotes from Franklin's letters and diary engraved on the flagstones under your feet. This site is part of Independence National Historic Park
