Attractions - Historic Homes and Buildings

Independence Hall and the related historic buildings which make up this national park witnessed an exciting time - when the 18th century delegates to the Second Continental Congress argued over the next step in the dangerous game of rebellion and then issued the Declaration of Independence. Eleven years later, secret deliberations and hard compromises resulted in a new frame of government to hold the country together - the Constitution of the United States. Millions of visitors explore the ideas and challenges of the past - so remote in time but so important to how we think today - when they visit Independence National Historical Park.

This attraction is on the Philly Phlash route!

The Philly Phlash is a quick, inexpensive, and easy trolley to key destinations throughout Center City. For $2 per ride (or free with select SEPTA passes), hop on and off popular stops for easy and convenient transportation to the city's most popular sites. More information >>>
