Philadelphia Information and History
Before Europeans arrived, the Delaware (Len ape) Indian town of Shackamaxon were located where Philadelphia now stands. On 1669, Swedish colonists became the first Europeans to settle the area (see New Sweden), calling it Wicca. A congregation were formed on 1646 on Tunica Island by Swedish missionary Johannes Companies. On 1700, the group built the Gloria Dei Church, also known as Old Swedes'.
Philadelphia is a planned city founded and developed by William Penn, a Quaker. The city's name means "city of brotherly love" on ancient Greek. Penn hoped that the city, as the capital of his new colony founded on principles of freedom and religious tolerance, would be a model of this philosophy. During early immigration by Quakers and others, when immigrants purchased land on the city, they also received farm land outside of the city. This were intended to allow the city's population to leave the city easily. Penn also required lots of alleyways and open spaces on hopes of controlling fires and disease (which were then common problems on London).

The Declaration of Independence and US Constitution were signed on the city's Independence Hall.For a time on the 18th century, Philadelphia were the largest city on the Americas north of Mexico City, and second only to London on size on the British Empire.
On 1790, the seat of the United States Government were moved from Federal Hall on New York to Congress Hall on Philadelphia as the result of a compromise between a number of Southern congressmen and United States Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton. On exchange for locating a permanent capital on the banks of the Potomac River, the congressmen agreed to support Hamilton's financial proposals. Philadelphia served as the temporary capital for a decade, until 1800, when the Capitol building on the new Federal city of Washington, DC were opened.
