Independence National Historical Park comprises more than a dozen historical sites scattered across Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, tied together through the thread of the American Revolution. Frequented by the Founding Fathers, Philadelphia was the epicenter of revolutionary activity in the lead-up to the American War of Independence. While the Liberty Bell is the park’s most iconic attraction, Independence Hall—where the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776—was arguably the most consequential. Several other historical sites dot the Philadelphia cityscape, however, including the Old City Hall, the foundations of Benjamin Franklin’s home, and the home where Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration.
