Christ Church Burial Ground is closed in January and February. However, you can still see Benjamin Franklin's headstone through the gates on Arch Street, near 5th Street. For fees and more information on visiting this partner site, see the Christ Church web page.
Christ Church Burial Ground opened in 1719 and remains active today. This is the final resting place of some of our nation's most prominent founders, including five signers of the Declaration of Independence: Benjamin Franklin, Francis Hopkinson, Benjamin Rush, Joseph Hewes and George Ross.
