Independence Hall is a public building in Philadelphia, PA. It was in this building that some of the most important events of our Nation’s history took place.

Our Founding Fathers and colonial leaders met to plan the future of the new Nation. The Declaration of Independence (1776) and the United States Constitution (1787) were debated and ratified here. It is a U.S. National Historic Landmark. Independence Hall was also the home of the Liberty Bell for over 200 years.
