Philadelphia

Founded in 1682, Philadelphia is the foremost city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. It was established by William Penn as capital of the Pennsylvania Colony and given the Greek name "Philadelphia," which means "brotherly love." The name was intended to indicate a place where people can worship freely without fear of being persecuted - Penn himself had been persecuted for being a Quaker. Philadelphia has a special place in the history of America. It was a meeting place for the nation's founding fathers and once served as a temporary U.S. capital.

With a population of over 1.5 million people as of 2014, Philadelphia is the most populous in Pennsylvania.
