Enter the Fragments of Franklin Court exhibit through a courtyard door in Franklin Court. Benjamin Franklin built this home in 1786 as a rental property, where a prosperous merchant kept shop and lived with his family.

It now features an archaeological exhibit with artifacts found buried in Franklin Court. Stripped down to the bare walls, this building allows visitors to examine 18th century building practices and observe some of Franklin's fire safety improvements.
