Owned and operated by The Carpenters' Company since it was built in 1774, Carpenters' Hall remains the meeting place of our nationâ€™s history. Within its walls, Carpenters' Hall was the site for the First Continental Congress; the secret encounters between Ben Franklin and a French spy, Julien Achard De Bonvouloir, in 1775 which led to the French American Alliance; the Pennsylvania Provincial Congress in 1776; visits by the Queen of England in 1976; the King and Queen of Sweden in 1994 and in 2000, events related to the Republican National Convention, to name a few. Carpenters' Hall is open daily except Mondays from 10am until 4pm. During the months of January and February, the Hall is also closed on Tuesdays. Admission is free; however, donations are greatly appreciated.
