During the Revolutionary era, Philadelphia's Independence Hall was commonly known as the State House of the Province of Pennsylvania. It was constructed between 1732 and 1756. The Second Continental Congress held their meetings in the State House during the Revolution, and in 1787, delegates gathered in the Assembly Room to write the United States Constitution.
