    Feed blogger Shannon McDonald is at Penn Treaty Museum today, which has opened its collection, usually only available online, to the public in celebration of the creation of a mural by Miriam Singer celebrating the history of Penn Treaty Park.

    Among the articles on display are Native American artifacts, wood from a descendant of the original “Treaty Tree”  — where William Penn was said to have signed a treaty of friendship and peace with the Lenni Lenape Native Americans — letters, drawings, and more. The collection is arranged by period, so visitors will have the feeling of traveling through time as they walk along the exhibit.

    The collection, showcased in the museum’s building at Delaware and Columbia avenues, will be on display until 6 p.m.
