The Greek name Philadelphia translates to “City of Brotherly Love”, a common nickname for the 5th most populous city in the United States. Founded in 1682, Philadelphia was the name was chosen by founder William Penn, who hoped this would be a city of tolerance and love, free from religious prosecution. One of the oldest settled cities in the country, Philadelphia would go on to play an important role in the shaping of our nation. It was here that the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence and later, the Constitution. In our quest for freedom from Britain, Philadelphia played a critical role as one of the primary American headquarters during the Revolution. Thanks to its pivotal location at the confluence of the Delaware and Schuylkill Rivers, and its proximity to the rest of the Northeast, Philadelphia became a major industrial center during the 1800s. Immigrants moved here in droves, soon followed by African-Americans looking to leave the South during the Great Migration. As the global economy shifted and manufacturing companies moved elsewhere, Philadelphia went through a trying period of job and population loss that put it on the brink of financial collapse during the 1980s. Eventually, the city would rebound, and today stands as one of the economic and educational pillars of the Northeast.
