Pennsylvania Memories Last a Lifetime


Pennsylvania, “The Keystone State” was given the nickname because it was located at the center of the original 13 colonies and held a key position in the development of the United States, socially, politically and economically, giving our Country it’s foundation. The word “keystone” comes from architecture and is an important stone in an arch, which holds all the other stones in place.


Two of the most important documents in the foundation of our Country were created inLiberty Bell Philadelphia, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. And, on November 19, 1863 in Gettysburg, President Lincoln delivered the famous Gettysburg Address dedicating the battlefield cemetery. Our State is full of rich history, from museums and attractions to reenactments and exhibits.


Titusville, in the “valley that is known to change the world,” is known as the “Birthplace of the Oil Industry,” the site of the "first" commercial oil well.


Pennsylvania is the home to Hershey Chocolates, Crayola Crayons, Zippo, QVC, Bethlehem Steel, Heinz; Longwood and Hershey Gardens; Little League World Series; Philadelphia Eagles, Phillies, 76ers; Pittsburgh Steelers, Penguins and Pirates; and many companies, attractions and sports teams too numerous to mention.


Pennsylvania is 1st in the United States in: Rural Population, number of licensed hunters, State Game Lands, covered bridges, potato chip production, pretzel bakeries, licensed bakeries, meat packing plants, mushroom production, sausage production, and scrapple production.


Pennsylvania leads the nation in the number of farms and acres permanently preserved for agricultural production.


There are 120 state parks in Pennsylvania to enjoy the majestic mountains, beautiful creeks, brooks, lakes, rivers and waterfalls.  Wherever you are, you will not be more than 25 miles away from a park. There are 25 natural lakes, and 2,500 man-made lakes in our beautiful State.


Come visit and stay awhile . . .

Hi Bette, I have been in and through your State man times.  I loved the scenery.  I remember the first time I heard the word "Scrapple" in a Pennsylvania Diner near State College, PA and have never heard of it anywhere else.

Kwee, thank you, and I look forward to reading more of your posts as well.

Larry, Scrapple is delicacy to some, but I am not tempted at all to try it!

Joy, I wouldn't live anywhere else, how about you?
