Pennsylvania was created when England’s King Charles II granted a charter to William Penn in 1681. Once each year the Pennsylvania State Archives exhibits the original document, for a limited time, at the State Museum of Pennsylvania. For the remainder of the year the Charter is safeguarded in a special vault within the Archives.
In addition to programing at The State Museum, many historic sites and museums along the Pennsylvania Trails of History will offer FREE admission on Sunday, March 12.
