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.

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

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
