Betsy Ross' House, Philadelphia, PA

This is where Betsy Ross purportedly lived when legend says she made the first American Flag. Although the house is one of the most visited tourist sites in Philadelphia, the claim that Ross once lived there, and that she designed and sewed the first American flag are considered apocryphal. Regardless of the provenance of this site it is worth visiting.

PS. There's a fringe benefit to visiting Betsy Ross' House. The Real World Philadelphia was filmed next door.
