Independence Square consists of four historic buildings in Philadelphia, including Independence Hall, Old City Hall, Congress Hall, and Philosophical Hall.
Independence Hall has served a vital purpose in the early history of the United States because it served as the site where statesmen adopted the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America.
In 1743, Benjamin Franklin and his colleagues created the American Philosophical Society to provide a meeting space for eminent scholars and other renowned intellectuals, but they did not have a meeting place until the moved into Philosophical Hall.
In 1790, Congress Hall became the first seat of the United States Congress, where it remained until the national government moved from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C. Here, President George Washington and President John Adams had their inaugurations.
In 1791, Old City Hall served as the original home of the US Supreme Court before it moved to Washington, D.C. Afterward, the building served as Philadelphia’s City Hall until 1854.
