Mr Monkey at the Benjamin Franklin House

"Now, this is the place to visit"

Mr Monkey was led round to 36 Craven Street. This dates from 1730, and is a Grade 1 Listed building largely unimproved since the 18th century. It's also notable as Benjamin Franklin lodged here with Mrs Margaret Stevenson, a widow, from 1757 to 1762 and from 1764 to 1775, when he was acting as a political representative of the colony of Pennsylvania. And there's a plaque on the wall outside to prove it, sort of.
