Independence Hall is the birthplace of America. In this building, the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution were both debated and signed. The legacy of the nation's founding documents - universal principles of freedom and democracy - has influenced lawmakers around the world and distinguished Independence Hall as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
