Fall & Halloween Activites at Betsy Ross House & Franklin Square in Philly

Spooky Twilight Tours at the Betsy Ross House

On Friday and Saturday evenings from October 1-29, take a trip back in time to Philadelphia in the 1700s to learn about the city’s gruesome history of infection and inoculation.

Hear true, macabre tales about bloodletting, smallpox, yellow fever, and other gross experiences. Find out what it was like to live in the ghastly 18th century and discover why Philadelphia was an infectious place to be.

Then, head into the House for a spooky, shadowy tour. Tours run every half hour from 6 to 9 p.m. Timed tickets are $12 and must be purchased in advance.
