Visit the site where Benjamin Franklin's house once stood in what is now called Franklin Court. Franklin was serving as emissary to England and France during most of the home's construction, and his wife, Deborah was responsible for overseeing much of its construction. Franklin ultimately died here in 1790, and the house was eventually demolished in the early 1800s. Today, the site lies tucked between the hubs of Market St. and Chestnut St. and visitors must pass through a brick archway to reach the site.
