Independence Hall

   
 
 
 

Built between 1732 and 1753, Independence Hall, located in Philadelphia, was originally called the Pennsylvania State House. Independence Hall was the site of the meeting of the first Continental Congress, and the site of the signing of two of America’s most important documents: the Declaration of Independence, and the U.S. Constitution. The nation’s most famous bell, the cracked Liberty Bell, rung from the towers of the building for 224 years (until 1976). Independence Hall is pictured on the back of the $100 bill and on the back of the 1976 Kennedy half-dollar.
