Historic Christ Church
20 N. American Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106 GET DIRECTIONS

For a true taste of America's religious history, look no further than Christ Church. Founded in 1695, it was the first parish of the Church of England in Pennsylvania and later became famous for the Revolutionary-era leaders who worshiped there. Historians of numerous backgrounds have conducted in-depth research on the establishment, recognizing the important components of American life and history reflected in its background. The church's burial ground has also earned the distinction of one of America's most interesting Colonial and Revolution-era graveyards, as it is the final resting place of many leaders including Benjamin Franklin and four other signers of the Declaration of Independence.
