Additional Details:
Congress Hall is situated on the site which was occupied by a wooden shelter for visiting Indians before the Revolution. The present building was completed in 1790 and until 1800 was occupied by the Congress of the Nation. After 1800 it was devoted to criminal courts which now sit in the City Hall, the old building being empty.
