Wow! Gorgeous old church. They told us NOT to step on people's graves/names, but it's hard to when they are down the entire aisle going up/down to front of church! SMALL PEWS; big people can't sit in them...FYI only.

This is an awesome church to visit. The historical value alone is great. The surrounding gardens were very peaceful for us to stop and rest for awhile during our walking tour of Philly.

We wanted to go see Ben Franklin's grave but didn't want to pay the $3.00 to get in. Saw it walking down the sidewalk, new it was his because people were standing by it.

Well-maintained, beautiful old church with a lot of history. Sat where George Washington and Betsy Ross sat during service. There was also a man playing music outside and it was lovely. Would recommend to anyone!
