When one wants to discuss early American history, one must include the city of Brotherly Love. If one is talking about that fine city’s history, one must discover one of its most well known organizations dedicated to preserving that city’s past, namely the Independence Hall Association. Founded in 1942, the Association moved to secure the future of the Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and other such historical structures. Since that time, their mission has expanded greatly, and they have become interested in similar projects all over Philadelphia. This website provides a treasure-trove of material on such Philadelphia notables as Betsy Ross, Benjamin Franklin, as well as historic places, such as the Paoli Battlefield and Germantown. Along with these features, visitors can watch an actor playing Benjamin Franklin talk about the Internet and take a gander at a video of historic Philadelphia.
