Old Visitor Center

Historic District a005

The Old Visitor Center across the street (notice the reflection of the First Bank) is now the Independence Living History Center Archaeology Laboratory, an open-to-the-public feast of shards, bones, and broken glass. The Visitor Center has moved to the Mall, north of the Liberty Bell Center. The bell in the tower here, cast at Whitechapel Foundry, was a gift to the people of the United States in 1976 from Queen Elizabeth.
