This beautiful Georgian building plays much of a role in the development of American history as any other building in the city. Built in 1727 as the first Episcopal Church with the intent that it should be the greatest Church in the colonies, the Church has hosted in its congregation 15 signers of the Declaration of Independence. Other members include Benjamin Franklin, George Washington and Betsy Ross. This grand history and architecture draws over quarter a million guests through the Church’s doors every year. A tree-shaded brick path, a small park and a cobblestone alley cradle this historical gem. Do take the guided tours; the guides are extremely knowledgeable, passionate and tend to make the history of the place come alive for you – so it’s especially a treat for any children you might bring along. The place is charm and gravitas rolled in one. If nothing else, it’s an excellent break from the bustling Philly city.
