1,591 Reviews

Carpenters’ Hall is an important structure, both historically and architecturally speaking. Built for and still owned by America’s oldest craft guild, the site was added to the list of National Historic Landmarks in 1970. The guild was founded in 1724 and opened its first meeting location her on Chestnut Street, just a few hundred feet from Benjamin Franklin’s home.

The site has welcomed a number of dignitaries throughout its history, including President Václav Havel from the Czech Republic, U.S. President George W. Bush, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger and King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden. In addition to the important meetings held here, the structure itself is worthy of a mention. It’s a beautiful example of Georgian architecture, represented by the building’s usage of Flemish bond brick pattern, cupola and windows.

Philadelphia is widely regarded as one of America’s most historically significant cities, and for good reason! This is the city where the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were born. It was Philly that served as America’s capital before Washington DC even existed. Here is where the American flag was created, where Ben Franklin proved that lightning was electricity, and where the iconic Liberty Bell rang and cracked but endures as a symbol of freedom. These are just a few examples of how Philadelphia has helped shape the United States of America. Come and take a guided stroll through Independence National Park, along the cobblestone streets of Old City, past buildings, statues, and monuments, and through the history you think you know. Your local guide will separate the fact from the fiction and you will be amazed by Philadelphia’s remarkable past.
