Benjamin Franklin. We have all heard of him, right? Inventor of electricity (well, kinda). Flyer of the kite? Didn’t he make a stove or something?
Benjamin Franklin is one of the most astonishing Founders of them all. He made the most important scientific discovery of the century – without being a scientist or even going to school for more than a year and a half. He became so wealthy that he was able to retire at the age of 42 – despite the fact that he came to Philadelphia as a young man without money. He was known as a politician, a sage, a scientist, a philosopher and a doctor, but preferred to call himself a “printer” in his will.
Join us in a celebration of Benjamin Franklin’s birthday on January 17th and 18th for a special tour that is only given on these dates. Your guide is none other than Benjamin Rush, who knew Benjamin Franklin very well for many years. Why not learn from Benjamin Franklin from a man who knew him?
This is a once in a year opportunity for you and your family. You won’t want to miss it!
