Congress Hall - Review

Since Philly once served as the Capital of the country, the Congress Hall was once the Capitol – serving in this position for 10 years. Naturally is saw some of the Senate’s most historic sessions go down – including the introduction of the Bill of Rights. It was initially a simple county courthouse. The city tried to convince the Congress to keep the capital in Philly and to push it, constructed a massive Presidential Palace as well as introducing the chamber of the House of Representatives, and the Chamber of the United States Senate. As it is, the congress hall makes for a simple but powerful tour. George Washington was inaugurated for the second time here and John Adams was inaugurated too. The Federal Mint, the First Bank,  and the United States navy were all established here. It fell into disrepair over the years and was almost demolished, but the city restored and saved it and reconstructed it’s interior to accurately reflect it’s glory days.
