Carpenter's Hall

Carpenters' Hall was the meeting place of the First Continental Congress in 1774.  As the Colonies first began to unite in their opposition to Great Britain, Patrick Henry famously stated that “The distinctions between Virginians, Pennsylvanians, New Yorkers, New Englanders are no more. I am not a Virginian but an American!” Thus the concept of the "American Identity" was born!

Many believe the spirits of our Founding Fathers may have never left this hallowed hall.  Hear more about the story of "Phantom Footprints" on the Spirits of '76 Ghost tour.
