Betsy Ross House
Though historians may debate the veracity of whether Betsy Ross truly did sew our nation's first flag of 13 stars and 13 stripes, visitors can learn about the life and times of the famed seamstress on a tour of the Betsy Ross house. This tiny, well-restored property on Arch Street is one of the city's most popular historic attractions. Ross is believed to have rented the home, and having been newly widowed, worked as a seamstress and upholsterer, often sewing flags for American ships.
