Betsy Ross House 3.5 rating

  Landmarks

The Betsy Ross House purpotedly was home to Betsy Ross, who in 1777, sewed by hand the first American flag with its distinctive circle of thirteen stars. The fact that she lived in this particular house has been refuted by some historians. You can tour the house independently, or purchase an audio guide, and afterwards 'meet' Betsy Ross and other colonial craftsmen in the courtyard of the house.
