  • Graveyards still give me the heebie jeebies, but I guess it's kind of cool to see the gravestone of Benjamin Franklin.
  • Ok so I have a thing for wandering around in old cemeteries. I am drawn by history and a cemetery is the best place to find history. In just one glance you can learn so much about people you never knew existed. In this cemetery you also get to learn about people you do know existed. People who helped shape the world we live in today also. They offer a map and they sell a small book. Get the book it's cheap, but packed full of information on the cemetery and some of it's residents.
  • Amazing place .including Ben Franklins burial site
  • Well kept little cemetery. I could find a little peace in here.
  • Coming to the Christ Church Burial Ground, 20 N American St, Philadelphia, PA 19106 where Benjamin Franklin is buried is educational. Lots of history not only here but in the immediate area as it pertains to the birth of our great nation.
