Philadelphia History

A History That Predates America

Philadelphia plays a central role in the story of America. The City of Brotherly Love is swamped in lore, facts, and political intrigue. The story of Philadelphia predates our Founding Fathers, and it is one of the most iconic of our collective narrative. In 1681, William Penn was granted a charter by King Charles II and founded a colony bearing his name, Pennsylvania, meaning "Penn's Woods".

With its reputation of a spirit of tolerance and maintaining good relationships with the Native Americans who inhabited the area, Philadelphia soon surpassed Boston as the largest city in the British Colonies.

Then The Flames of Liberty Were Lit

The colonial era saw many changes. Philadelphia, with its central location, became the favored meeting spot of America's revolutionaries. The Founding Fathers met in Philadelphia, hosting the first Continental Congress before the Revolutionary War and signing the Declaration of Independence at the Second Continental Congress, and the Constitution at the Philadelphia Convention. 

Rise and Decline

Settled by Quakers, Philadelphia was an early stronghold of the abolitionist movement. The first African American congregation in the nation was founded here in 1816. Following the Civil War, the city grew as freed slaves left the South for the prosperity of the industrial North.

Philadelphia continued to prosper all the way through to the 1950s, even playing host to the nation's first successful worker's strike. Following the loss of middle-class union jobs, the city began to decline, but revitalization and restoration efforts have put Philadelphia on the upswing once more. 

Philadelphia Today

A Modern City with Historical Significance

Once the rallying point for patriots and founders, the Philadelphia of today is known for its love of sports (home of the Philadelphia Eagles), photo ops at its famous LOVE sculpture, and its much-revered Philly cheesesteaks. The City of Brotherly Love is a must-see for history buffs, with its iconic Liberty Bell and plethora of historic sites. Pop culture enthusiasts- you might remember the appearance of Philadelphia's Independence Hall in "National Treasure" and the steps of the Museum of Art in "Rocky".

Essential Philadelphia

With its historical and cultural attractions, Philadelphia has something to offer every kind of traveler. Here are some of the spots locals and visitors alike say should be on everyone's bucket list:

  • Independence Hall: Location of the First and Second Continental Congresses and the Philadelphia Convention, this historic hall has witnessed some of the most important moments in American history.
  • Museum of Art: Home to some incredible works of art, this location is perhaps more well known for its appearance in the classic movie "Rocky". Go ahead, you know you want to run up the steps, just as Rocky did!
  • LOVE Sculpture: One of the most iconic images of Philadelphia is its LOVE Sculpture, located in John F. Kennedy Plaza, or LOVE Park, as it is more commonly known.
  • Longwood Gardens: While the gardens are a 50-minute drive from downtown Philly, the more than 1,000 acres, 20 outdoor and 20 indoor gardens, and 11,000 types of plant make the time spent well worth it.
