On July 8, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was first read in public here. Although the square is not as imposing today, it still has great dignity. You can imagine the impact the reading had on the colonists.

Little historic park bounded at one end by the Independence Hall complex of buildings. Pleasant enough, with some historic value.
