Historic Philadelphia

Keys to Community by James Peniston 2007 shows Benjamin Franklin in keys!

Philadelphia is the city of Benjamin Franklin, its founding father and the birthplace of independence.

As we visited on the third and fourth, the city was full of patriotic, historic tributes.

Below is another famous Philadephian, Betsy Ross and her famous flag in her home...
