Join us for a free public ceremony to celebrate the reopening of Carpenters’ Hall, the National Historic Landmark home of the First Continental Congress, which in 1774 laid the foundation for American independence. The Hall closed in April 2022 for a comprehensive exterior preservation project, and reopening was delayed by a devastating fire on Christmas Eve.
The ceremony will feature VIP speakers, performances and other surprises to recognize the completion of the preservation project and recovery from the fire. Plus get a sneak preview of plans to commemorate the 300th anniversary of The Carpenters’ Company and the 250th anniversary of the First Continental Congress in 2024. A ribbon cutting will be followed by self-guided tours of Carpenters’ Hall, with historic reenactors appearing throughout the day. The Hall will close at 4:00 p.m.
