Take a tour of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, United States – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
Philadelphia Pennsylvania’s Independence Hall is looked upon by many as the “birth place of the United States of America”.
Within these now historic walls, the Declaration of Independence was drafted, debated upon and finally signed in 1776.
The bell tower of Independence Hall held the original Liberty Bell which now resides in the Liberty Bell Center.
Construction of this American landmark started in 1732 in Georgian architectural style; twenty one years later it was finally finished.
Independence Hall has gone through many restorations over the years, and in 1948 the building’s interior was reverted back to its original appearance.
This monument is housed within the confines of the Independence National Historic Park and has been honored with the moniker of World Heritage Site.
