Betsy Ross House

Visit the charming, 18th century home of America's most famous flag maker, now preserved as a museum dedicated to sharing the story of America's first "stars & stripes" and the legend of Betsy Ross. 

The historic residence includes a gallery exhibit, "Stitching the Story Together," that explores the life of Betsy Ross and the request that made her one of the most well-known women in American history. Visitors can also meet a historic impersonator of Betsy Ross ask her questions about her fascinating life as she works in her upholstery shop.

The Betsy Ross House also includes exhibits about the contributions of other women, like "Women at Work in Revolutionary America," which illustrates the jobs women held in colonial America. 

New experiences: Betsy is in the Courtyard every 30 minutes to greet visitors and share stories. Once Upon A Nation Storytellers are also onsite to tell stories about Philadelphians who helped make history.
