Celebrating the 4th of July at Ben Franklin’s London Home

Sixteen years before the Revolutionary War officially kicked off, Ben Franklin resided in London acting largely as a mediator between Britain and America. The house he stayed at, 36 Craven Street, is the only house that he lived in that is still standing today. While in England in the summer of 2016, I had the immense joy of attending the historic homes’ 4th of July party complete with champagne, cake, apple pies, lemonade, and more. I would love to revisit the house one day for a proper architectural tour! Learn more about Franklin in London, and plan your own visit to the house: http://www.benjaminfranklinhouse.org/
