"Penn - Sylvania" (Fenn's Woods), A commonwealth of landscapes From meadow to timber - line. Keystone of the great Union, Since seventeen eighty - nine; Kissed by Atlantic breezes, From lands of the rising sun. Home of the "Quaker City", Where the Liberty Bell was rung, It seems the joy of Heaven Just flashes at sunset's glow over the Alleghenies And the rivers down below; From Lake Erie to the Delaware, O'er the Mason-Dixon Line, You get a glimpse of Heaven Each evening at sunset time. checkered with mighty highways, Through mountain, velley and glen. And beautified by rivers, Is this wonderland of Penn; Where states were welded to remain, At Valley Forge and Gettysburg, In the land of Anthony Wayne. William Penn, having been granted the tract of land by King Charles II, proposed the name "Sylvania". However, because of admiration for Penn's father, the King declared it shoud be Penn-sylvania. Route 87 in Sullivan County.
