Fakten

  • Christ Church is often called 'The Nation's Church'.
  • Christ Church and its steeple were partly financed by lotteries managed by Benjamin Franklin.
  • This Georgian Colonial structure is of red brick, with balustrades and urns on its roof, and a large Palladian Window in front under a medallion of George II.
  • This Episcopalian church has been an active parish since 1695, and was among Philadelphia's leading churches during the Revolution.
  • The steeple (on the church's west end) was the tallest structure in North America at the time of the Revolution.
  • The important revolutionary figures George and Martha Washington, Robert Morris, Benjamin Franklin, and Betsy Ross had pews, all of which remain.
  • The church's font was originally from All Hallows-by-the-Tower in London and was the font in which William Penn was baptized.
