Philadelphia Information

Situated between the Schuylkill and Delaware rivers, just across from Camden, New Jersey, Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania and the fifth largest city in the USA. The birthplace of the United States and the nation's original capital (1790-1800), it was founded in 1682, by the English Quaker, William Penn, who envisioned the colony as a 'holy experiment' to create a land of tolerance and religious freedom. Many settlers fleeing persecution flocked to it.
Penn named the town after the Greek word for 'brotherly love'. At the turn of the 19th century, Philadelphia was known as the 'Workshop of America', as its cotton mills, textiles manufacturing and steam-powered machinery plants led the country into the Industrial Revolution. Today, health care, medical education (one sixth of America's doctors train here) and service industries such as tourism, banking, legal and insurance services drive the city's economy. New high-tech industries, such as medical technology and electrical components, are also emerging.
