Pennsbury Manor

Pennsbury Manor is the reconstructed country estate of William Penn, founder and first colonial governor of Pennsylvania. The main house overlooks the Delaware River at a point about twenty miles north of Philadelphia.

While Penn only resided here for a relatively few years, his ideas established the groundwork for religious tolerance, ethnic diversity and legislators elected by citizens, much of which found its way into the United States Constitution almost a century later.
