Benjamin Franklin visits Bluffton

BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

History came alive on Saturday at the Storybook Shoppe in Old Town Bluffton.

Benjamin Franklin was there reading to the children.

He also told them about his amazing life and all his inventions.

"I don't think there is a person who personifies the person better than Benjamin Franklin and as we get closer to independence day, I think it's important to remind people of what we were and how we became the nation we became," said "Benjamin Franklin" a.k.a. Steve Nousen. 

The Storybook Shoppe also had books about Benjamin Franklin, the 4th of July, and the Declaration of Independence, available for children to read.
