Philadelphia Historic Timeline - 1727: Christ Church begins building a new church, replacing the smaller one built in 1710. Its bell tower—whose original set of bells remains in use—will be the tallest structure in the American colonies through the 18th century and the place of worship for many Founding Fathers and Mothers, still located at 20 N. American Street.
