What you'll do

Take a self-guided tour around this 300-year-old, two-acre burial ground, and visit the final resting place of several key players in America's early history.

Visit Christ Church Burial Ground with Go City® 

  • Admission to the famous burial site.
  • See the graves of Benjamin Franklin and four founding fathers.

Four of the signers of the Declaration of Independence are buried here, along with Benjamin Franklin and his wife, and several other Colonial and Revolution-Era figures. The burial ground contains 1,400 markers but over 2,500 more have disappeared due to erosion.

Learn about the lives of the American colonists and prominent leaders as you explore the peaceful gravesite. It's an old Philadelphia tradition to throw a penny onto Benjamin Franklin's grave for good luck, to honor the coining of his phrase 'a penny saved, is a penny earned, so you'll find his grave under hundreds of copper coins.
