The Betsy Ross House in Philadelphia

The Betsy Ross House in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is a landmark institution known as the birthplace of the American flag.

The beloved story of Ross sewing the first stars and stripes has become part of American history. The revolutionary seamstress is credited with helping George Washington with the flag's design.

Now when you tour the famed 18th century home you can meet Besty and listen to her acclaimed version of the Revolution through an interactive historic program. Special tours are also available for kids ages four to eight.

Some visitors have reported seeing ghosts and hearing ghostly voices in the building, built over 250 years ago.
