This is a beautiful and amazing place. If you love architecture or old churches, you won't want to miss this. Incredible stone and wood carvings. Truly a slice of American history. The countryside surrounding the chapel is glorious, with narrow winding roads, beautiful vistas, and one lane covered bridges.

The Chapel is unique, becaues when entering this sacred place where Washington and Martha may have attended and prayed for our Nation. As you enter notice the hand carved pews and plaques. When at the alter you can almost feel the presence of the famous founders' prayers for the victory over the Red Coats. Our children must see this place... More

Beautifuk little chapel absolutely worth a visit. Listed as the ninth stop on the Valley Forge encampment trail it was definitely one of the highlights. Stained glass was vivid. The feel of the church overall was different than any I have seen before.

The chapel is outstanding, totally remembers me of Anglican chapels in Europe. The windows are perfectly forged and the interior is peaceful and astonishing. It's a definitive a place you cannot miss during your visit to Valley Forge.

The number of items in there can be overwhelming but the historical significance makes sorting through it all worthwhile. A local Episcopal rector raised money slowly in the form of nickels and dimes. The stone walls were built a few feet at a time. The church was completed over a period of fourteen years and still has an active congregation.... More

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.
