Historical Society of Pennsylvania
1300 Locust Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19107
Free and open to the public.
Pennsylvania has long been known as the Keystone State, and not without cause. Its history and culture have been shaped by its place—geographically and otherwise.
In conjunction with the Pennsylvania Historical Association annual meeting, HSP will display selections from its collections that look at Pennsylvania as a place, whether geographical, political, or imagined. Included will be items that depict the “place” of Pennsylvania in its region(s) (mid-Atlantic, Ohio Valley, Great Lakes, Northeast, etc.), the nation, and the world as well as Pennsylvania places, large and small, throughout the commonwealth’s history.
