CARPENTERS HALL


A Brief History: Carpenters’ Hall located at 320 Chestnut Street Philadelphia Pennsylvania, was built in the early 1770’s and is most well known for being the meeting place of the first continental congress in 1774 where fifty-six delegates from all colonies except Georgia created a draft for a declaration of rights and grievances as well as elected Peyton Randolph as the first president of congress.


A Haunted History: It is said that the Haunted history of Carpenters’ Hall started in 1879 when a resident named Tom Cunningham passed away of yellow fever. After his death residents began hearing footsteps and banging coming from the room he lived in which continued for decades since Carpenter’s Hall stopped renting attic space. There have been many reports of loud voices and a strange tobacco smell coming from the attic.
