Carpenters Historic Hall (Philadelphia, PA 19106-2708)
Michael L. Norris (Project Director: August 2019 to present)
Planning a New Exhibition for Carpenters’ Hall

Planning of a new permanent exhibition for Carpenter’s Hall, the site at which the First Continental Congress met.

In advance of the Carpenters’ Company of Philadelphia’s 300th anniversary and the 250th anniversary of the First Continental Congress, both of which will occur in 2024, the Company is planning a new core exhibition in its headquarters, Carpenters’ Hall. This project seeks to update the interpretation of the events that occured in the Hall by prioritizing an inclusive social history that draws on recent scholarship and appeals to a broad audience. This grant will help the Company refine the themes and content of the new exhibition through testing and consultation; determine the best use of the physical space; and develop interactive and immersive strategies for interpretation.
