Information on Membership

Making History Relevant at Independence National Historical Park and You Can Help

Since its beginnings, local citizens have been the driving force behind preserving and protecting Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. It was the community who saved these iconic images along with the other historically significant sites and turned them into a national park.

When you become a member, you add your name to the generations who have come before and take up the mantle of preserving our history and our heritage. We need your support now to help us sustain this national park for future generations.
