We'll listen back to recent features from the CultureFiles section at GoPhila.com. Besides being a great statesman, diplomat, communicator and inventor, Franklin also founded, among other institutions, the Library Company of Philadelphia and Fireman's Hall. We'll also visit the Franklin Institute and Christ Church Burial Ground--Franklin's last resting place.</p> Sat, 14 Jan 2006 19:27:00 +0000 Jim Cotter 1720 at http://wrti.org
