If you’re moving to Pennsylvania, you’re moving to a state steeped in U.S. history.

The Second Continental Congress, which also met in Philadelphia (in May 1775), drew up and signed the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia. Later, the Constitution was written, and Philadelphia was once again chosen to be cradle to the new American Nation.
