Independence Hall, Philadelphia, PA

This is where both the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were debated and adopted. The lowest chamber of the original wooden steeple was the first home of the Liberty Bell. When that steeple was removed in the 1780s the bell was lowered into the highest chamber of the brick tower, where it remained until the 1850s.
