Knott's Independence Hall is a National Historical Site located in this part of the city. It is a kind of time capsule. You will experience a trip to the past and witness the signing of the Declaration of Independence there, as this important historical event took place here at Knott's own Independence Hall. Every day they show a re-enactment of this event, hence bringing this piece of history to life. The building is very beautiful with spire, dome and clock.
Located directly across the street from Knott’s Berry Farm, Knott's Independence Hall is an exact, brick-by-brick replica of the original historical Philadelphia landmark.
This free exhibit offers visitors a chance to personally dive deeper into America’s past. Guests can explore the museum to see an exact replica of the Liberty Bell or to check out wax figure recreations of prominent political figures such as Betsy Ross and George Washington. There's also a variety of historical presidential artifacts.
Independence Hall was unveiled by Walter Knott, who admired the original landmark, as an extension of his famed theme park on the fitting date of July 4, 1966. This was exactly 190 years after the Second Continental Congress officially adopted the Declaration of Independence in the original Independence Hall more than 3,000 miles away.
