What people are saying:

The Carpenter's Hall was the site of the first Continental Congress in North America. The name of the house comes from the company of the same name, because at that time the ownership of the house belonged to this company. On September 5, 1774, people from the colonies of North America at that time gathered here for a meeting. It was open until October and wrote to the King of England requesting that the colony be regarded as a whole and making a request. If the requirements are not met, the second The next meeting in the year. Therefore, although the house is not big, it is very important in American history. Every important day, such as the anniversary of the British occupation of Philadelphia, there will be a costume event. Some people will play the role of the British army, some will play the role of civilians, and some will play the role of militia.

    Short visit

    There was not really too much to see in here. Interesting to see for historical purposes but only a ten minute or so to see everything.
