About us

The Benjamin Franklin History website was created by the Benjamin Franklin Historical Society as part of of the University of Massachusetts History Club. Our objective is to give honor to Benjamin Franklin as one of our founding fathers and to recognize his importance in the development of civic responsibility, science and entrepreneurship in colonial America.

We have compiled information and resources that combine both basic facts and in-depth research for history fans and school projects. There are many quality publications about Benjamin Franklin but many of these offer extra insight that may be difficult to understand while others provide only basic information.

We hope you enjoyed your visit to our site. If you have any questions or need help with your history project, send us an e-mail at: benjamin-franklin-history@hotmail.com
