Christ’s Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Yesterday I showed you something rather fun. Today I will not be so silly. This is the inside of Christ’s Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Philly is a very important city in the history of the United States. It was here that our Founding Fathers tried to iron out our differences with The Crown, and ultimately unable to preserve their rights as British subjects, made the decision to sever political ties.

It was in this church that George Washington and Ben Franklin worshiped.

This was George Washington’s presidential pew. Yes, I actually sat here just to say that I sat where George Washington sat.  Later, John Adams was allowed the use of this pew when he became the second president of the United States.

And this was the Franklin’s Family pew.

So cool to see a bit of our history. A trip to see some of the historical sites associated with our nation's founding is on my bucket list.
