"visit the Betty Ross House..." Betsy Ross House Tip by GUYON

Betsy Ross House, Philadelphia: 5 reviews and 5 photos


Favorite thing: visit the Betty Ross House (1773). 239 Arch Street - Visit 10:00AM to 5:00PM. Unique interest : it's a house ... Nearby, there are some actors of Historic Philadelphia (see 'Must see Activity').

Fondest memory: Betty Ross (a quaker) sewed the first American Flag. It was easier than today : there were only 13 stars.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
