Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell. The capital is Harrisburg. I remember how beautiful the inside of the capital building is!

Gettysburg is a very cool place to visit and tour. My girls and I loved it.

Pennsylvania is known as the Keystone State, because of its central geographic position in relation to the 13 original colonies. It is the state where declaration of independence was was signed and the home of the first continental congress. Our constitution was written here. Pensylvainia means Penn's Woods named after William Penn. I believe he was granted this large tract of land from the King of England. Pennsylvania is home to "the sweetest place on earth", Hershey, PA. It's where the original Hershey Bars were manufactured and remains home to Hershey corporate headquarters. Our state tree is the hemlock, flower; mountain laurel, bird; rough grouse. In the past coal minning was a big industry, as was steel. We still produce all kinds of agricultural products including; dairy, poultry, beef, corn, apples, peaches, pears, & berries. We still have many forrests and continue to produce lumber. You know, when she cites the source of this information my name won't hold a great deal of academic credibility. Good luck to Izzy. She should cite me as a quilter and resident just remembering what I learned in elementary school.

Try netstate.com. Select Pennsylvania. It looks pretty good. I have trouble copying links with this laptop, or I would link it for you.

My mother's family emigrated to Pennsylvania from England over religious problems. Not sure which religion, but it was not the officially sanctioned state religion at the time, and they had to meet in their homes. They had to flee.
They came to Pittsburgh when there were 12 houses there. He worked on the dock at the point where the the Allegheny river converged with the Monongahela to form the Ohio. She brought his lunch to him every day.
I lived next to the Monongehela river as a child.

Completely off topic I know, but could anyone help with DD's homework?

Research the nick-name of Pennsylvania, the population, attractions, culture and landmarks.

I was wondering/hoping if you lot across the pond could turn up something more interesting than what is in wiki-pedia. Thanks for any assistance.
