One of the original 13 colonies after America declared her independence, Pennsylvania is an amazing state. Pennsylvania in the east gave birth to our Constitution and was the country’s first capitol while Pittsburgh in the west gave birth to the steel industry. In between, the Allegheny’s are a spectacularly beautiful reminder of some of the oldest mountains on the continent and the Pocono’s is where many people vacation or send their kids for camp.
One of the 13 original colonies, Pennsylvania came into being in 1681 as a result of a royal land grant to William Penn, son of the state’s namesake. Its southern border formed part of the Mason-Dixon line. Before becoming a state, it was organized as the colony of New Sweden.
