Carpenters' Hall is a treasure in historic Philadelphia. It hosted the First Continental Congress in 1774 and was home to Franklin's Library Company, The American Philosophical Society, and the First and Second Banks of the United States.

In Old City, Philadelphia, Carpenters’ Hall was the site where Founding Fathers frequented and where early America took shape. The National Historic Landmark was and still is home to the Carpenters’ Company, a group of master builders who laid the foundations for Philadelphia’s first buildings and sites that were home to many of the nation's most pivotal moments.
