Congress Hall, Philadelphia PA
So these pictures are old, but remember when I went on my old city adventure and the tour of Independence Hall? Well I went on a tour of Congress Hall as well. But I never got around to posting those pictures.
So basically this is what Congress Hall’s function was in our Nation’s early history. It served as the seat of the U.S. Congress from 1790 to 1800. During the time that Congress Hall served as the nation’s capital, the country admitted three states (Vermont, Tennessee, and Kentucky), ratified the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution, and oversaw two Presidential Inaugurations (Washington’s second and John Adams).
The two pictures here is where the House of Representatives met. It’s full of desks, like these, that make a half circle around the large room. You can sit in the desks and everything, makes you feel like your one of the representatives XD The room accommodated 106 representatives from 16 states.
NOTE: The first picture of the Building’s exterior does not belong to me. I just realized that I didn’t take a picture of the outside of the building. NOW, we move to the second floor 8D
