We toured the Betsy Ross House, which is an old row house built more than 250 years ago in Old City, between 2nd and 3rd and Arch. The rowhouses on either side of it have been removed, but the original rowhouse, from which Betsy Ross ran a sewing business still stands today. The story is that three men, George Washington, Robert Morris, and George Ross, walked into her shop one day and asked her to sew the first American flag to which she answered, "I do not know, but I will try."
