The Forum is part of the Pennsylvania State Capitol Building, which is commonly regarded as one of the most beautiful state capitols in the country. The auditorium incorporates semicircular seating and a distinctive ceiling depicting the constellations of the northern sky.
Creative enterprise is not stimulated by vast inheritances. They bless neither those who bequeath nor those who receive... A tax upon inherited economic power is a tax upon static wealth, not upon that dynamic wealth which makes for the healthy diffusion of economic good. (Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1936)
