Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

City Hall

City Hall

Philadelphia’s City Hall stands as the nation’s largest municipal building, and its elaborate architecture makes it one of the most spectacular. The carved sculptures and allegorical figures that adorn the exterior and the iconic statue of William Penn that tops the building were created by Alexander Milne Calder. Tours of the building’s 14.5 acres offer visitors a peak at the building’s interior architecture, and timed trips to the top of the tower provide panoramic views of the city.
