We were running short on time and almost did not stop. I got out of the car only to take a couple quick photos. Once I looked inside I made everyone else get out of the car to see this beautiful chapel. Truly one of the most beautiful I've see. It's not to small and not large. I only wish... More

Walk through the arches and see the flags as well veteran wall of honor. There is a liberty bell here as well. The canons up front give a gorgeous view of the... More

This is one of those places that should be put on the bucket list for history buffs. I was going to stop briefly but ending up staying for over an hour. A must see.

Stopped and found this church when doing to driving tour of the area. The church is so amazing to see. The hand carved seats and every part of the church is just so intricate and detailed. Amazing. Seeing the names of the people like George Washington on their pews is like stepping back in time.

i would have missed this, if it wasn't for my friend taking me here on Friday morning who lives in the area. The Chapel's stained glass windows are a peek at our history in amazing details. The pews are beautifully carved. The architecture of the building is outstanding. This is an active church. I would have loved to have a... More

This was a pleasant surprise. The stained glass depicts idealized, and in some cases fictional images of Washington. However, it is just so beautiful and moving! The outside stones have the names of American Generals and Founders all around. Don't pass this by if you're at the National Park.

This chapel is beautiful, and the stained glass windows are just incredible. All of the windows have Revolutionary War images on them and the level of intricacy is amazing. This is a working chapel and people can rent it for private events, so there is a chance you may not be able to get in, and we were actually asked... More

Beautiful church and great architect. Loved the stained glass. It closes earlier than the park so visit the church first.

The bells were ringing this day. The church is so special. The wood carved pews with ornaments. The ceiling, the Windows. One could discover something at each turn of your head. Just beautiful!
