Christ Church and the beginnings of Amercia.

1695 as a condition of William's Penn's charter Christ church was born.  The church we now know was built in 1744 by Robert Smith , and Thomas u. Walter architect of the capital.

Many of our most loved patriots did attend services there George Washington, Ben and Deborah Franklin and of course Betsy Ross. Our Flag making girl also married her second and three husband at Christ church.

 I did forget to mention this beautiful house of worship is right the heart of Philadelphia  you can visit and even tour the cemetery where 7 signers of the decoration of independence , 5 signers of the constitution.

 If you go to this church's website they have all there records open to view and even  written in plain language instead of Old English thee's and thou's.  

 Have a great week end friends and follow us on goggle+  Nora
