Historic Philadelphia

Philadelphia's Historic District is more than Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. We are pleased to present to you the multitude of historical richness found within one square mile in Historic Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Enjoy the virtual tour — from the Liberty Bell to the Man Full of Trouble Tavern. Learn a little history, catch wise to some architecture, and pick up fascinating, albeit useless morsels of triviata. We also hope that you consider making Philadelphia your destination of choice next vacation. Come to the place where a country was born and visit in person.
