"Independence Hall" Independence - Carpenter's Hall Tip by spgood301
Independence - Carpenter's Hall, Philadelphia: 87 reviews and 151 photos
It's one of the crown jewels of Philadelphia attractions (ironic because the fight at that time was to leave the crown). Independence Hall is where the Declaration of Independence was signed. It stated the 13 colonies' intent to break away from the British crown, though that was not fully achieved until the end of the American Revolution years later. Since America was still under British rule, this was a treasonous document - the signers could have hung for signing it, but they were never caught.
Notice how this iconic old building blends in with the newer, taller ones behind it. It's that way throughout Philadelphia - the old and new together.
Address: Chestnut Street, between N 5th and N 6th
