|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until June 30, 2021

This week, leading up to Independence Day learn the true stories of the life and times of the Signers of The Declaration of Independence buried here, including Benjamin Franklin, Joseph Hewes, George Ross, Francis Hopkinson, and Dr. Benjamin Rush.

We are proudly presenting a new series of graveside chats about lesser or unknown Revolutionary figures and topics. Each chat begins at a bench in the burial ground and will conclude with a tour of related gravesites led by a guide. Some may include an interpreter or costumed character. These 25 minute chats run every Wednesday at noon and are included with admission.
