A trip to the post office is a routine activity for most Americans, so we also honor Benjamin Franklin as the man who organized America’s first public postal service. As the first postmaster general of the United States, he appeared on America’s first postage stamp. Since that first stamp, Franklin has appeared on numerous U.S. regular issue and commemorative stamps
Franklin’s Post Office is still open for business. Stop there and send a Philadelphia postcard home to friends or family to commemorate your trip!
