Where Is William Penn?

William Penn is famous for founding Philadelphia "The City Of Brotherly Love."There is a large statue of him towering over the city atop a building there.The picture shown depicts it.

A lesser statue but known to many is on the grounds in front of Pennsylvania Hospital.

It is said that at midnight of the full moon, the statue descends from the pedestal and roams about.
Residents,tourists and employees of the hospital claim to have seen it.Some say they find themselves looking up when passing it to see that it is still there.

The same is said of a statue of Benjamin Franklin in front of Independence Hall.

Oh... how chilling to look up, and see it's not there one minute, and then back there the next! ;)
