Building where Bill of Rights was born partially demolished

It was a historic mistake.

A Pennsylvania building believed to be the birthplace of the Bill of Rights was partially demolished earlier this month because developers didn’t know the origin of the site, The Sentinel reported.

The building, originally known as the James Bell Tavern, hosted a meeting in 1788 of anti-Federalists opposed to the ratification of the new nation’s Constitution. The group began calling for changes to the document, and their plea was eventually heard when the Bill of Rights was adopted in 1791.

  • Isn’t that Liberal Territory up there? Would not be surprised if done on purpose! The Left has been trying to destroy the history of our nation ever since the Kenyan Muslim Queen Pig moved into the WH! Obama even putting himself in Historical Photos to make it look like his perverted queer butt had something to do with it! Best thing for our Nation is when this pervert is put in the dirt and covered with pig guts! That goes for the Criminal, Hillary, too! The world will be such a better place without them! TRUMP/AMERICAN PATRIOTS 2016!

    Someone is looking at one hell of a restoration bill! OOPs!

    How could anyone living in the area NOT know the historical significance of the building? Have we lost that much pride in our Nation’s birth that we just don’t remember or care which places and buildings are of historic significance?

    What a shame!
