Reviews for Carpenter's Historic Hall

over a year ago

Colonial carpenters discussed their ever-growing business at this building, which later hosted the First Continental Congress. – In Short
Carpenters' Hall was designed by Robert Smith as a place for carpenters to hold their guild meetings. The Carpenters' Company, formed in 1724, is the oldest trade guild in the United States; it continues to maintain the building. Carpenters' Hall played host to 1774's First Continental Congress; chairs used for that meeting are on display. Colonial building methods are also examined, and a selection of late 18th century carpentry tools also is available for viewing.
