Pennsylvania

In 1681, King Charles II of England granted William Penn a section of land west of the Delaware River. Penn called this forested land Sylvania (Latin for “woods”). As a tribute to William Penn’s father, King Charles himself tacked on the prefix, making it Pennsylvania. One of the original Thirteen Colonies, Pennsylvania is known as the Keystone State because of its important role in forming the country. The Declaration of Independence was signed and the United States Constitution adopted in Philadelphia. Pennsylvania has contributed much to how Americans eat. Hershey and Heinz are headquartered in Pennsylvania and familiar throughout the country and much of the world. Pennsylvania is a major manufacturer of potato chips, pretzels, and other snacks. In Philadelphia, Italian immigrants created the Philly cheese steak and pepper pot, while Pennsylvania Dutch developed warm comfort foods like chicken pot pie and regional wonders like sticky buns, scrapple, shoofly pie, and the soft pretzel. The first commercial mushrooms were grown near Philadelphia in the late 19th century. Pennsylvania remains a major mushroom producer.
