Sitting several blocks away from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, this was the home of Betsy Ross - the woman who designed and sewed the first American flag. The front part of the home was built around 1740 and Ross is said to have resided there with her third husband. Visitors to the historic home have reported accounts of seeing her ghost crying at the foot of the bed in the basement and hearing ghostly voices.

  • Faces appeared in picrures

    I was in 5th grade on a class trip to visit the Betsy ross house along with other historical landmarks. I recently just found the pictures I had taken while I was in Betsy Ross's bedroom. The 1 picture has a clear face of a girl/woman on Betsy's bed, only the face is shown. Its pale white with great detail and turned to the side. The other 2 are in the flash light that is on her wooden blinds in the bedroom aslo, 1 is a long evil face and the other is a small what looks to be little boys face that somewhat resembles a egyption type face, he is looking at the evil face. I was the only one left upstairs while trying to take pictures, because I clearly remeber the teacher yelling my name from the bottom if the stairs and telling me to lets go we are moving on. These pictures gave me nightmares when i was younger and finding them today still gives me shivers and a uneasy feeling.
