Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Independence Mall

Independence Mall

Thanks to its two newest attractions, “America’s most historic square mile” tells a more complete storyof the country than ever before. Just steps from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, the open-air President’s House: Freedom and Slavery in the Making of a New Nation commemorates the enslaved people who served the first president, while the glass-walled National Museum of American Jewish History delves into the trials and triumphs and American Jews through every phase of the country’s history.
