AAA Editor Notes
Christ Church (Episcopal), on 2nd St. between Market and Arch sts. within Independence National Historical Park, was the house of worship of 15 signers of the Declaration of Independence. Brass plaques mark the pews once occupied by Benjamin Franklin, Betsy Ross and George Washington. The 1727 structure typifies early Georgian architecture. It has one of the oldest Palladian windows in North America. It also contains the font from which William Penn was baptized in 1644 in London.
