Fun facts about Pennsylvania

If your nanny is a fan of old films, he/she will want to visit downtown Indiana, Pennsylvania during Christmastime. It is the birth place of actor Jimmy Stewart of “It’s a Wonderful Life” fame. Therefore, the downtown is decorated to correlate with the movie’s theme each Christmas. But it’s Admiral William Penn that folks celebrate statewide. That’s because the state was named after him. His son William Penn, the state’s founder, actually named the state after his father of the same name. The Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia in 1776. In June 1778, a 700 wagon caravan escorted the Liberty Bell on its return to Philadelphia from Allentown along Towamencin's Allentown Road. And of course in February Punxsutawney citizens are proud of their town's most famous resident, the world-renowned weather forecasting groundhog Punxsutawney Phil! The kalmia latifolia, better known as the Mountain Laurel, became Pennsylvania’s state flower in 1933. The distinctive pink flower fills the Pennsylvania's woodlands in mid-June.
