What to see and do
Originally built in 1791, this faithful reconstruction captures the dimensions of the building when it served as the United States Department of War. Inspect the exterior and imagine the meetings and discussions that took place about the Whiskey Rebellion, northwest expansion, and the French Revolution. While here, stop and enjoy the gardens and explore the rest of Carpenters' Court.


The exterior New Hall and Carpenters' Court are wheelchair accessible via curb cuts. Learn more about the accessibility services offered throughout the park on our website.
