Liberty Hall - Quakertown, PA

Updated: Sep 7, 2022

Liberty Hall (Quakertown, Pennsylvania) is a historic building built in 1772 as the first permanent residence in Quakertown, PA. It is a two-story 15 feet by 15 feet building with one room per floor.

The Continental Congress decreed the Liberty Bell be moved before the British Army melted it down for ammunition. On September 18, 1777, six days after the Liberty Bell left Philadelphia it was hidden on the property of Evan Foulke on West Broad Street, Quakertown, where they stopped for respite for the night.

The next day the bell continued on it’s journey to the Zion Reformed Church in Allentown, PA to be hidden under the sanctuary’s floorboards for the remainder of the Revolutionary War.
