Franklin Court

The “ghost house” at Franklin Court stands on the spot where Ben Franklin’s 1776 home once stood. Designed by internationally renowned architects Robert Venturi, John Rauch and Denise Scott Brown, the structure now stands beside the Benjamin Franklin Museum in Philadelphia’s Independence National Historical Park.
