The month of March is devoted to women who have paved the way for future generations. As part of women’s history month, Governor Tom Corbett took time on Tuesday to celebrate one of Pennsylvania’s well-known women in history.
Hannah Penn, the second wife of Pennsylvania founder Williams Penn, played an instrumental role in the development of the commonwealth in the 1700’s. An exhibit featuring artifacts associated with the husband and wife was unveiled at the event.
The First Lady Susan Corbett also attended the event at the State Museum of Pennsylvania.
