 Betsy Ross House

Mother, widow, upholsterer and businesswoman, Betsy Ross, the woman credited with stitching the first American flag, juggled a busy life. At the award-winning Betsy Ross House, interactive displays, period furnishings and appearances by Betsy herself give visitors a face-to-face look at the lives of Colonial women.
