Join us as we celebrate the birthday of Benjamin Franklin by walking among the sites of his homes and haunts in Colonial Boston.
In his day, Benjamin Franklin was America's greatest scientist, inventor, diplomat, humorist, statesman, and entrepreneur. Ben was born in Boston, came of age in Philadelphia, and was the darling of Paris. From his many inventions, creations of civic, philanthropic, and educational institutions, to his roles in the founding of America, his legacy is immeasurable.
Meet your guide in the plaza at School and Washington Streets, between Walgreens and the Irish Famine Memorial in Downtown Crossing.
