The state government works in a beautiful building in Harrisburg called the Capitol. The large dome in the middle, called the Rotunda, is 272 feet high and weighs 52 million pounds!

The Moravian mosaic tile floor of the Pennsylvania State Capitol has close to 400 picture tiles. The tiles pictured on this flyer are all located within the main rotunda. This is a fun activity for your students to see how many they can locate and check off during your visit to the Capitol.

Three hundred years ago, it was known as Penn's Woods (Penn's Sylvania) - and William Penn owned it all! No commoner in history, before or since, personally possessed so much land. Unfortunately, early forms of transportation never permitted Penn to see more than a tiny fraction of his estate.
