Benjamin Franklin Parkway is a scenic avenue that runs through the cultural heart of the city, an integral part of the Museum District. It was designed in 1917 to emulate the Champs-Élysées in Paris. Benjamin Franklin Parkway is the site for many concerts and parades. It is also called "Avenue of Remembrance". The street was named after the city’s son Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), a leading American writer, politician, scientist and inventor, one of the founding fathers of the US. Logan Square, also known as Logan Circle, is an open-space park in the Center City neighborhood and one of the five original planned squares laid out on the city grid. It was the site of public executions and burial plots until the early 19th century. In 1825, it was renamed Logan Square after James Logan (1674-1751), a Philadelphia statesman and former secretary of William Penn.
