After the Revolutionary War, the Episcopal Church was reborn here at historic Christ Church, Philadelphia, the oldest parish in Pennsylvania, mandated in William Penn’s royal land grant; this building was erected in 1744, thirty years before American colonists seceded from the British Empire. Bishop William White, longtime rector of the parish, and 15 signers of the nation’s founding documents are buried in the churchyard. (Wikipedia)
