Pennsylvania

THE KEYSTONE STATE

Pennsylvania, a northeastern U.S. state and one of the 13 original colonies, has a diverse terrain, which includes wide stretches of farmland, national forests and mountains. Philadelphia, the Keystone State’s largest city, displays its rich history in Independence Hall (where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed) and the Liberty Bell, an enduring symbol of American freedom. Pennsylvania was the middle colony of the original 13 colonies and has held a “key” position in the economic, social, and political development of the United States.Three of our most treasured documents were written in Pennsylvania: the US Constitution, the Declaration of independence, and the Gettysburg address.
