CHRISTS CHURCH

Christs Church in Philadelphia, PA was founded in 1695 as the Church of England.  Located very near the Independence Park when our Nation was born it had 15 signers of the Declaration of Independence.  People who attended here were George Washington, Ben Franklin, Robert Morris, and Betsy Ross.

The Church is huge on the outside and inside.  The Image above was taken just as I entered the Church and the fella is pointing to me to take a seat and learn History.  I did so.  Most of the people like George Washington and Ben Franklin had their own assigned seats that are marked with a Brass Plate showing where they sat.  George and Ben took their seat up front where the fella in the Blue shirt is.  More than 250,000 people a year tour this Historic Church.

Not my Image, but this is what the Church looked like long ago.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.
