Charter Day 2017

The following PA Trails of History Sites will be open free of charge on Sunday, March 12, to celebrate the anniversary of Charles II's granting of the land we know as Pennsylvania to William Penn in 1681. From March 12 to 17, the original Charter that documents the transaction will be on display at the State Museum of Pennsylvania, along with The Great Law, a set of statutes passed by the PA General Assembly in 1682. Check the March 2017 program page for details of site activities on March 12 and throughout the month.
