Philly Phridays #6: Liberty Bell & President’s House Site

Directly across from Independence Hall is the Liberty Bell

And yes

  • the lines are large

  • you can’t make timed reservations

  • you wait a long time

  • and there’s just a Bell in there

But c’mon already. It’s the freaking Liberty Bell. Of course you have to see it.

Also the building and grounds are a vital site, as we remember that the Bell didn’t ring for:

Austin
Christopher Sheets
Giles
Hercules
Joe
Moll
Oney Judge
Paris
and
Richmond

Among others. The entrance to the Liberty Bell Center is directly over the slave quarters of the original President's House.

For more information, the Philadelphia Inquirer's President's House series is fantastic.
