Carpenters' Hall of Philadelphia
Carpenters' Hall is a treasure in historic Philadelphia. It hosted the First Continental Congress in 1774 and was home to Franklin's Library Company, The American Philosophical Society, and the First and Second Banks of the United States.
Carpenters’ Company - Member Firm Showcase
Over the summer of 2019, Our Bloomberg Arts Intern, Tracy Pendleton, III worked hard and thoughtfully on several interesting projects here at Carpenters’ Hall. His capstone project, however, has been an online showcase. The showcase linked below features images and descriptions of building projects that current Carpenters’ Company members have contributed to.
We hope to make this an active and rotating showcase. We encourage visitors to check back frequently! We encourage current Carpenters’ Company members to submit photos of projects that they take pride in.
The Carpenters’ Company thanks Tracy for his work this summer! We wish him the very best as he advances to the next level of his studies.
Set humbly back from Chestnut Street, the Hall has been continuously owned and operated by The Carpenters' Company
of the City and County of Philadelphia, the oldest craft guild in America, since 1770.
OPEN to THE PUBLIC
Today, Carpenters' Hall is free to the public and welcomes over 150,000 world-wide visitors to this wonderful Georgian building. Admission has been complimentary since 1857, when it became the first privately owned American building to be opened as a historic monument.
