About Benjamin Franklin House

BFHF has helped fund the restoration of what is believed to be the sole remaining residence of Benjamin Franklin in existence in any part of the world.  BFHF has received, approved and funded various grant requests from Benjamin Franklin House, a U.K. registered charity, for the improvement, preservation, maintenance and operation of this residence as a “living museum”.

For nearly sixteen years between 1757 and 1775, Dr. Benjamin Franklin – scientist, diplomat, philosopher, inventor, US Founding Father and more – lived in London at 36 Craven Street.

During this intense period, his main occupation as Colonial agent was mediating unrest between Britain and America.  Though ultimately unsuccessful, he planted seeds of a special relationship that continues to be a source of strength for both nations.
