The Happy Colony

Colonial Pennsylvania

As you can see this is a map of colonial Pennsylvania. We are bordered by Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, and New York.

Our Founder

Pennsylvania or the Province of Pennsylvania was founded in North America by William Penn on March 4, 1681. William Penn founded Pennsylvania through a charter given to him by King Charles II. The name of Pennsylvania was created by using the name Penn and with the word Sylvania is Latin for "forest land".

The people who've come to our province have been happy! While other colonies have suffered from hardship and many people have died from famine and sickness, everything here is going well.

Our Geography

If you like the four seasons Pennsylvania's the place for you! We have warm humid summers and cold snowy winters, with lots of forests and hills. Our soil is fertile, the climate is pleasant and we are able to grow crops.

In Pennsylvania our economy is mainly focused on agriculture especially wheat, cattle, corn, and dairy. We also specialize in manufacturing of textiles, papermaking, and ship building. We have a little bit of something for everyone! The sounds of hammers and saws are everywhere and houses are being built every day. Ships come in everyday with lots of new settlers. You will have lots of company!

In Pennsylvania we have religious freedom, so you can practice whatever religion you like! There is no restriction on free worship. You can have a religion as long as you profess your belief in Jesus Christ.
