(41º0'0"N 77º30'0"W)

Pennsylvania, known as the Keystone State, and once known as the Quaker State, joined the Union on December 12, 1787 as the 2nd state. Pennsylvania is one of four states that is called a commonwealth (the others: Massachusetts, Virginia, and Kentucky). The name Pennsylvania is a combination of the Latin sylvan which means woods, and the last name of the founder of the colony, William Penn.

Located in the Middle Atlantic Division of the Northeast Region, Pennsylvania is bordered on the north by Lake Erie and the State of New York, the east by New Jersey, the south by Maryland and West Virginia, and the west by Ohio.



There are 44,700 miles of state-administered paved roads in Pennsylvania – more than in New Jersey and all of New England combined. Yet along those miles a driver might encounter such things as a horse and buggy reined by a bearded farmer or his bonneted wife. Or around the next curve one of the state's 300 covered bridges. Or an old fieldstone barn bright with hex signs. Or a battleground of the Civil War, the Revolution, the French and Indian War.

Past and present are close neighbors in Pennsylvania, the “Keystone State” of the original 13.

Northeast Native American Cultures -

Poster Text: The northeastern part of the U.S. and Canada includes coastal lands, rivers, the Great Lakes, valleys and mountains. before the arrival of European settlers, this region was mostly one vast forest. In these woodlands teeming with deer, bear, rabbit, and other animals, most of the Indians were hunters and gatherers. They also fished in the lakes and rivers. In wet marshy areas Indians gathered wild rice. And in the summer, some tribes planted crops of corn, squash, and beans. ...

William Penn
b. 10-14-1644; London
d. 7-30-1718; Berkshire, England

William Penn, a pacifist Quaker, was the founder and “Absolute Proprietor” of the Province of Pennsylvania. Penn received what was to become the state of Pennsylvania as a land grant from Charles II in repayment for a loan made by Penn's father to the king.

Penn, who visited the colony several times and wanted to settle in Philadelphia, hoped an income would be generated by those who were drawn to Pennsylvania because of his charter guaranteeing “free and fair trial by jury, freedom of religion, freedom from unjust imprisonment and free elections”.

FYI - In 1681 Penn decreed that one acre of old-growth forest must remain for every five acres cleared, making him an early environmentalist and conservationist.

Valley Forge, 22 miles northwest of Philadelphia, was the site chosen by George Washington for the Continental Army to over the winter of 1777-78.
