About Philadelphia

Philadelphia's earliest settlers were Swedish and Dutch explorers, but the area was taken over by the British in the 1600's. William Penn was granted a charter from the King of England to establish a colony in Pennsylvania in 1681. He chose the name Philadelphia (which translates to brotherly love) for the colony's largest city, and helped design the layout.

In the 1700's, Philadelphia became one of the most important sites of the American Revolution. It was the most centrally located American colony, and so it was chosen as the meeting place for the First Continental Congress. Later is also hosted the Second Continental Congress where delegates signed the Declaration of Independence. As the colonists went to war, Philadelphia remained a key location and the site of several different battles. Following the war the Constitutional Convention was also held in Philadelphia.

During the 1790's, Philadelphia was named as the capital of the United States. By then the city had gained a large population, but an outbreak of yellow fever in 1793 claimed many lives. Some estimates say that up to 10% of the population died during the epidemic, and it took a major street and sewer cleanup effort throughout the city to finally bring an end to the disease.

Today Philadelphia is known as an industrial and historical city. It boasts both a modern city landscape and a variety of well-preserved landmarks. City leaders are working hard to develop a beneficial budget and improve all aspects of this well-known city.
