Love Valley Forge Park. This chapel is amazing. I lived out there for years before realizing it was even there.

Beautiful place, it's the last stop on the self drive tour, and we got there at almost 5 pm which is when they close, but luckily they kept it open and we got to see this magnificent place, so happy we did, it's just as beautiful outside! When there don't miss it!

As everyone else has already stated, this is simply beautiful. Gorgeous architecture, huge stained glass murals, exquisite woodwork. It is all just so stunning. They have the "Justice Bell" on display there, as well as monuments to fallen soldiers, and a garden outside. Spend time here and really take it all in, you'll be glad you did. Also, on Wednesday...

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

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
