The Betsy Ross House is believed to be the location where Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag. Known as the “Birthplace of Old Glory”, the house that stands there today was in very rough shape in the 1930s. In 1937, a radio mogul named A. Atwater Kent helped to have the house restored so that it could be brought back to its original glory. In 1941, Kent offered the house to the City of Philadelphia as a present so that it could become a museum and tribute to Betsy Ross.
