Additional Details:
Independence Hall in Independence Square has first rank among the historic buildings in Philadelphia. Built in 1735, it is an excellent example of colonial architecture. The Second Continental Congress met in the building in 1775 and it was the scene a month later of Washington's appointment as commander-in-cheif of the American army. It is even more celebrated, however,as the place of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.
