The chapel is not part of Valley Forge Park but it's worth finding. The architectural details inside and out are worth seeing. The stained glass windows are absolutely beautiful. Take time to look at all of the doors and down at the floor. This was an excellent last stop after an interesting afternoon spent at Valley Forge.

It's a nice chapel but it's a stand-alone rather than a part of the Historic Park. It's located on Rt 23 not far from Varnum's Quarters

We came across the chapel during our Valley Forge tour, the chapel is beautiful. The architecture is amazing, we loved the stained glass and lovely chalel bells.

This was our last stop of the day after visiting Valley Forge Park. It was a nice way to wrap up our visit. The bell tower, chapel, and the memorials on the walls are worth the time. The stained glass windows are beautiful.

Beautiful architecture both inside and outside. Do not miss seeing the garden on the left side of the Chapel.

The stain glass is unbelievable. Sat down and said a prayer. Walked the grounds and admired the view of the Valley Forge Park.

This is the last step of the Valley Forge visit. Don't miss out on this little chapel, it's quite nice, pay attention to the stained glass windows, they portray each of the original 13 States and the big one shows Washington's life scenes.

For me, it is always interesting to visit the halls of history. I find it amazing that such structures could be built without the benefit of today's tools and technology.

This chapel is on the tour road at Valley Forge and definitely worth a stop. Beautiful stained glass.
