Where did the Fourteen Building Names Come From?

Independence Harbor is comprised of 14 separate condominium buildings that are connected by a ground level and a mezzanine, which are both used for parking.

The names of the fourteen buildings in Independence Harbor were derived from the list of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence signed in Congress on July 4th 1776 . In most cases one name was chosen from each of the 13 states.

The first, largest, and most famous signature is that of John Hancock, President of the Continental Congress. The youngest signer was Edward Rutledge (age 26). Benjamin Franklin (age 70) was the oldest. Two future presidents signed: John Adams (second President) and Thomas Jefferson (third President). All of which are represented by building names at Independence Harbor.
