HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The Pennsylvania Heritage Foundation is marking the Commonwealth’s 333rd birthday along with several historical sites and museums that will offer free admission or other events.

Sunday marks the day that William Penn was granted a charter by King Charles II of Great Britain to create Pennsylvania in 1681.

The charter will be displayed that day at Pennsbury Manor, a re-creation of Penn’s country estate in Morrisville, Bucks County on Sunday.

Various other sites have commemorative events planned including the Drake Well Museum near Titusville, the Fort Pitt Museum in Pittsburgh, the Daniel Boone Homestead in Birdsboro, and the State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg.
