Experience the History of Philadelphia Take a Trip to My Hometown Philadelphia is rich with fascinating history and wonderful stories about how our country came to be. Growing up there turned me into the history buff I am today, so I can’t help but urge everyone to take at least one trip to the city and experience the Historic District’s incredible past. History buffs and casual vacationers alike will find something to marvel at, like a few of these favorites.
THE LIBERTY BELL One of the most iconic symbols of U.S. history, the Liberty Bell resides permanently on Independence Mall. At a whopping 2,080 pounds, it was originally brought to Philadelphia in 1752, where it cracked and was recast by John Pass and John Stow, whose names are emblazoned on it. It was usually rung to summon legislative sessions, but its most famous chime occurred on July 8, 1776, to announce the reading of the Declaration of Independence. You can learn all about its exciting role in history in much more detail at the accompanying Liberty Bell Center. ELFRETH’S ALLEY Named for blacksmith and property owner Jeremiah Elfreth, this alley is the nation’s oldest continuously inhabited residential street. Stepping into Elfreth’s Alley is truly like stepping back in time. Once home to
18th-century artisans, merchants, and tradespeople who formed the backbone of colonial Philadelphia, this street still houses residents in 32 homes. The original cobblestone streets and red brick exteriors portray the personality of our early nation, and two structures adjacent to the alley are informative museums open to the public. MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION One of my personal favorites and the inspiration for starting my own collection of RevolutionaryWar memorabilia, this museum displays the evolution of the American colonies from their humble beginnings to their improbable victory during the war that allowed the creation of a new nation. There are countless artifacts on display, like General Washington’s headquarters tent, the personal diaries of soldiers, and military weapons. Wandering the museum’s exhibits is a true history fanatic’s dream.
