    Leave a penny for Poor Richard; he earned it.

    It doesn't make sense to me why people throw pennies, nickels, and quarters on his grave. Throw $100 bills, that's what has his face on it!

    Franklin composed his own epitaph which read: the body of B. Franklin, Printer, Like the cover of an old book, its contents torn out.

    If you pay extra for a map of the grave yard, be sure and ask them where the secret tunnels are beneath the graves in the central part of the graveyard.

    On a budget? You can view the grave from the street and save yourself the $2 admission fee. Just be sure to toss a penny on the headstone for good luck

    Although Ben Franklin is the most notable member here, there are a total of five signers of the Declaration of Independence who call this their final resting place

    It is customary to toss pennies upon his grave as the saying goes , a penny saved is a penny earned." all money goes to charity
