Historic Chapel at Valley Forge

Beautiful Chapel. Very interesting and historic. The surroundings are scenic and there are huts used by the soldier to shelter from the winter cold. Would love to go back again... read more

While not dating back to the days of the encampment the Chapel is a sacred memorial to those who live and died for our independence from England. It is a quite lovely venue for a quiet moment and a repose from touring. There are, on certain day, clarion bells chiming from the steeple. Just behind the Chapel is a log... More

Great tribute to our history, and not only George Washington. Many symbols and memorials to our continual fight for freedom of speech and right to worship are here too. A lot of people don't know the Justice Bell is housed here, along with an explanation of its importance in our history. At the beginning or end of your visit don't... More

This is a beautiful building. Stained glass windows and intricate woodwork. It is a tribute to our forefathers who fought our War for Independence. A church does meet here and they have a staff member in the sanctuary who will explain anything about the building from the funds used to build it to all the symbols and what they stand... More

This is a beautiful church with gorgeous stained glass and carved wood benches, statues, and finials. There's also a wonderful statue of President Washington. We were shown the church by two current church members who had much information they shared. The beautiful cemetery behind the church has many graves of early Americans and you might consider a stroll in the... More

The Memorial Chapel is beautiful inside. It's the last attraction on the self-guided tour and definitely worth seeing.

This place is amazing. It's a miniature cathedral. When you visit the sanctuary you get the feeling of being at an old world castle somewhere in the UK. Although it's surrounded by Valley Forge Park, it's not part of Valley Forge Park. Too bad, they could use some taxpayers funds to spruce the place up a bit. Absolutely a must... More

A renaissance chapel next to the battlefield that is also an Episcopal parish. Open daily with Sunday services and occasional carillon concerts. Needs a good dusting out and cleaning of the magnificent stained glass windows something it shares with many similar churches. Great used book store and cafe.

This is the last stop inside the park and we were told not to miss the inside stained glass windows, gorgeous. The wood ceiling is impressive too. We had a quick bite to eat at the Chapel Cabin Shop behind. Very reasonably priced. Sandwiches, hot dogs, burgers plus chips or desserts including ice cream. Some candies and nuts, even a... More

The chapel is towards the end of the driving "loop". It is beautiful, with a bell tower, and the chapel is very peaceful. When we visited, there was a guide explaining the architecture. It is not big, so be sure to take the time to go through and don't skip it and drive out!
