Nice part of Valley Forge

Although not officially part of Valley forge, this active church added to the overall experience. It was interesting for a church exterior to be decorated with cannon.

If you enjoy historic churches, this is a must-see. Beautiful stone architecture, stained glass, carillon bell tower, right in the heart of historic Valley Forge National Park. In summers, on Wednesday evenings, the carillon bells are played by a professional, and you can bring picnics and sit outdoors and listen to the bells being played.

An island of com in the larger busy National Park. Beautifull and spiritual stop on the tour road but not really connected to the camp era but in stead a memoral to Washington.

If you are in Valley Forge, I highly recommend stopping in the chapel for a short visit. The stained glads windows and ornate decor are spectacular. The replica of the liberty bell is also wonderful to see.

The chapel itself is exquisite and definitely worth a stop and visit. Sort of a spiritual oasis in Valley Forge. (I was surprised, though, how the little cabin store on the premises had a staff that was sort of inhospitable/inexperienced.)

This chapel was amazing. You can see the Anglican influence in the structure. It would have been nice to have a docent at this site to explain the significance of the structure and some of the artwork.

I thought this was the best part of Valley Forge, I really loved the old chapel. The windows were beautiful for their age.

This beautiful church is still active and therefore has the atmosphere of reverence that is so appropriate for the whole park.

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 and spend more time there as our time was limited on the day of our visit
