Charter Day

William Penn received the charter for the colony of Pennsylvania from King Charles II on March 4, 1681.

To honor this great occasion today, the second Sunday in March is recognized as "Charter Day" in Pennsylvania.

Charter Day is a free admission day to all Commonwealth owned historic sites.

Landis Valley Museum saw a visitation of over 2,000 people on Charter Day.
