New Hall Military Museum

New Hall Military Museum

The New Hall Military Museum, located in Carpenters’ Court, along Chestnut Street between 3rd and 4th Streets, is open year round, though hours vary by season.. Exhibits are self-guiding, though rangers are available to answer any questions. This building is a reconstruction of the one constructed by the Carpenters' Company in 1791 and originally used to house the office of the first Secretary of War, Henry Knox, and his staff. The building currently houses exhibits highlighting the founding of the United States Marine Corps and the Army and Navy Departments from the American Revolution through the last decades of the 18th century.

We hope you enjoy our work.
