The "Betsy Ross" flag with thirteen stars hangs on the front of this stone house. Betsy Ross made flags for the United States for 50 years. The "Betsy Ross Flag" with thirteen stars in a circle did not appear until the early 1790's. The first thirteen star flag became the official flag on June 14, 1777 and was designed by Congressman Francis Hopkinson.
Happy Independence Day!
