Old City

William Penn made his Quaker settlement here. Benjamin Franklin wrote, printed, and performed pioneering science experiments. America declared its Independence and ratified the Constitution. Betsy Ross sewed the Stars and Stripes. Even now, the Liberty Bell rings freedom throughout the land.

Old City Philadelphia is the heart of historic America.

To say Old City is rich in history is a shocking understatement. Visit Independence Hall and the Betsy Ross House; the National Constitutions Center or the gorgeous colonial houses on Elfreth’s Alley; toss a penny onto Franklin’s grave for good luck or read about him in the world’s first free library, which he founded. It’s warm, bustling place, the beating heart of Center City.
