Additional Details:
Built originally as a home for the Carpenter's Company of the City and County of Philadelphia. Carpenter's Hall is famed as the meeting place of the First Continental Congress, which began in 1774, shortly before arrival of word of the cannonading of Boston by the British. It was used as a storehouse and hospital during the British occupation of Philadelphia. The First and Second Banks of the United States later did business within its walls.
