Meet the Women of the Betsy Ross House

Meet the Women of the Betsy Ross House

Meet three women who, like Betsy Ross, were 18th-century middle-class entrepreneurs: chocolate maker Mary CrathorneHannah Lithgow, who owned the House when Betsy Ross rented rooms there; and Phillis the washerwomen, a formerly enslaved woman.

Visitors will also meet Betsy herself at three different ages: the young rebel who sewed a standard for our emerging nation; the woman who made musket cartridges to support a Revolution; and, finally, as an older woman who shared stories with her children and grandchildren.
