Independence Hall Association
The Independence Hall Association (IHA) was founded in 1942 to spearhead the creation of Independence National Historical Park. We are written into the enabling legislation of the Park and stand as an independent group of private concerned citizens overseeing and being consulted on matters concerning the Park.
We helped in the effort to reconstruct the Declaration House, we donated the statue of the Signer, standing across the street from the Independence Hall group of buildings, and we encouraged development of guidebooks for Philadelphia.
Today the IHA through its website ushistory.org is one of the preeminent providers of online US history, from the pre-colonial era to the present with additional online educational presentations on American Government, Ancient Civilizations and other people, places and events in US history. We are proud to be used as source material in hundreds of public, private and home schools in the US and abroad. In all we do, we seek to educate and motivate an informed citizenry that can shape the future.
The IHA is a Pennsylvania nonprofit corporation which is exempt from federal income tax as a public charity under Sections 501 (c) (3) and 509 of the Internal Revenue Code. The Association is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
