Independence Hall is located on Chestnut St., between 5th and 6th Sts., on the north side of Independence Square. It was built in 1729-35 by the province of Pennsylvania as the Colonial State House. The East Room was occupied by the Second Continental congress, where the Declaration of Independence was made and signed July 4, 1776. A facsimile of the document hangs above the speaker's rostrum and portraits of singers hang upon the walls.
