There is so much history in this one chapel. The grounds are amazing. I enjoy strolling through the cemetery after touring the chapel itself. The wood is amazing! I can see why this is a top spot for weddings!

If you visit the park, you must stop and see this beautiful chapel. It gives a serene feeling as you walk up the aisle where services have been held since Washington's time. The carvings and stained glass show the wonderful craftmansip of the time, and enhances the sense of history.

a beautiful chapel, but to a history fan, what makes it special is the fact that George Washington and his Generals came here for services, and some of those generals are buried in the graveyard.

Seeing such a spiritually uplifting place in a national park when so much is being done to eradicate such experiences from public places is a joyful occasion!

If you visit Valley Forge, you won't want to miss the Washington Memorial Chapel. It is beautiful. There was a mini tour that was very informative and interesting. It is worth a stop.

This is a small, but beautiful chapel. The stained glass windows are amazing! The intricate detailing and wood/iron works was fabulous. There are small carved figures of George Washington kneeling in prayer. Just a quiet, peaceful place of beauty.

A beautiful old chapel with many interesting images and figures of George Washington throughout - how many can you spot? The 26-ton bell in the tower is amazing, as are all of the stained glass windows throughout both structures that tell interesting stories - not just religious ones. The chapel overlooks the Grand Parade where George Washington trained his army,... More
