Charter Day and More

The March program page has lots of info on events coming up.

This Sunday, March 12, is Charter Day. Every year, on the second Sunday in March, PHMC commemorates King Charles II's grant to William Penn of the land we know as Pennsylvania. Most sites on the Pennsylvania Trails of History will be open free of charge (we have a list) as we wish PA a happy birthday and kick off the spring season (assuming the weather cooperates).

The March program page provides more info on special activities at the sites, and you can learn more in this article on

Don't forget that Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 am on Sunday. If you still have clocks that don't reset themselves automatically, be sure to "spring forward" an hour or you'll miss some of the fun on Charter Day.
