I am not a native to Pennsylvania, having been born and raised in California. My husband was born on the western side of this beautiful state, and my first experience with Pennsylvania was for our missions training, which took place near Williamsport. I have now lived here for 15 years and consider myself a Pennsylvanian.
I quickly fell in love with PA, as we Pennsylvanians fondly refer to our state. It has such natural beauty year round and amazing history, and being a history lover, it is still a thrill to be able to visit many historic sites. Sometimes though the historic site is simply near to where I live - like yesterday I drove past the site, on my way to buy groceries, where the Pennsylvania Rifle had been designed and made. It later became known as the Kentucky rifle when Daniel Boone settled there. He is a native Pennsylvanian and we have visited the Boone Homestead.
I went to Allposters.com and found all these great pictures of Pennsylvania and chose the ones that I have seen personally!This is truly the most beautiful State Capitol! Amazing artwork inside!
The mighty Susquehanna.
This is Washington's Headquarters in Valley Forge. The rooms are small and they housed his officers as well as where they worked and made all their plans...
This is the US Mint in Philadelphia - it is right down the street from Independence Hall.
We drive through these tunnels every time we go to visit family in the Pittsburgh area.
This is such an amazing state, and we love living here. Now if our state government can get it together.....
Where do you live and where are your favorite spots to visit in your state?
