- Stephen Girard led a fascinating life and left a unique legacy when he died. His will allocated millions of dollars to fund a boarding school for the poor and underprivileged. For over 150 years, Girard College has provided education to children from low-income families. Founders Hall of Girard College features a collection of personal effects from Stephen Girard's several homes. Items on display include furniture, silver, glassware, china and artwork. A life-size statue of Girard stands in front of a sarcophagus bearing his remains. Free admission.
