Community Happenings: Week Ending 3/24

Blog Post created by hausmus Employee on Mar 28, 2017

We're a day behind on this week's Community Happenings, but it is all for good reason. I took a little weekend getaway to visit Philadelphia for the first time. I went to run the Philadelphia Love Run with a friend and some of you may have heard about the run as it is creating some buzz. Because Philadelphia is top of mind for me personally and since it is all over the news right now, here are a few facts about the city. 


Philadelphia was founded by William Penn in 1682 and it is the birthplace of quite a few firsts. Ben Franklin founded what became the country's first university, the University of Pennsylvania, in 1740. In addition, Franklin founded the first hospital in the nation in 1751, and the first lending library, the Library Company of Philadelphia, in 1793. Other firsts include the Philadelphia Zoo as the first zoo in the U.S. in 1874, first daily newspaper, the Pennsylvania Packet and Daily Advertiser, 1784, and the country's first art school and art museum, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, in 1805. 


Now, a look at what happened in the community, and around, last week.
