Independence National Park is located in Philadelphia, PA which is about a hour drive from my home. This is looking towards Independence Hall.
WE THE PEOPLE is written in steel on the front of the Main building. It is the starting words of the Declaration of Independence.

Would you like a Carriage Ride? I shot this fella because of his colorful uniform. The carriage is the same color as the horse.
Ben Franklin’s Post Office. Just behind this building, and somewhat visible, is the “ghost outline” of where Ben’s home once was.
Founded by Alexander Hamilton, the First Bank of the United States, is still here.
The rear of Independence Hall where the Declaration Of Independence was signed on July 4th, 1776.
This is the famous Liberty Bell. This is a photo of the real thing. I am sorry for the photo quality, but there were so many, many people around to see this, that it was very hard to get a good shot. The Liberty Bell has a huge amount of History behind it. When the bell was rang, it really did crack. There was this attempt to repair to keep the crack from splitting the bell in half. It still rings as it did many years ago.
INDEPENDENCE NATIONAL PARK is open to the Public for Tour’s most everyday. It is Registered on the National Historic Places of the United States. If you ever get a chance to see this place, go see it. It is well worth the time. I will be returning here later on.
