William Penn's 375th Birthday
Tue, October 15, 2019 6:30 P.M.
Come and enjoy an inspiring and interactive slide presentation on William Penn's life, contributions and legacy.
William Penn, a non-violent Quaker revolutionary, founded Pennsylvania in 1682 without firing a single shot and without building a single fort! He did it with the power of his pen, his treaties, and his eloquent diplomacy. Philadelphia was Penn's "Holy Experiment" where people who were persecuted in England and Europe could find freedom of worship, and greater political, economic and social equality. Many of Penn's laws for Pennsylvania were adopted into the 1787 Constitution of the United States.
