We came to visit the Liberty Bell, and did not know this was here. The information on the displays around the house are sad and amazing. We learned so much about the reality of slavery, and the history.

This place is worth a quick stop on your way to the Liberty Bell. There is not much left of this place, but they did find the original foundation. They have laid out where the original house sat. While there, think about how far the...More

Very cool how they have the foundation preserved. Great to see the walls built to show you what it roughly looked like. A quick visit before going to the Liberty bell.
