The oldest stock exchange building in the United States..
The Merchants' Exchange building currently plays host only to an excellent collection of dust and silent construction equipment. And the last thing that was traded here was a bag of bananas. Located at the triangular intersection of Dock Street and Walnut Street, The Exchange's singular feature is its semicircular font, flanked on either side by a flight of stairs. Constructed in the early 19th century, the building became a produce market in 1922. While it is closed to the public, it is still part of Independence Park and worth a look for its architectural uniqueness.
Wish it was open. This is a beautiful building (designed by william strickland) with a lot of history. Unfortunately, it's not open to the public except a small one-room exhibit. But if you're in town to check historical sites, it's worth walking by.
