Once Upon A Nation Storytelling Benches - Philadelphia

Ten award-winning Once Upon A Nation Storytelling Benches are scattered all over Philadelphia's historic district, telling stories of our nation's past in the places where they actually happened. Children can pick up a Story Flag at any bench, then collect a star from every storyteller on their journey. Flags with all the stars in place can be redeemed at the Historic Philadelphia Center, the Betsy Ross House or Franklin Square for a History Hero certificate & a free carousel ride.
