  • The history of the American Revolution and Washington's life are told in the stained glass windows.
  • They did a great job building this chapel. It really embraces the history of the area.
  • A beautiful chapel to see if you're in Valley Forge; the architecture and stained glass is breathtaking! Stop in the gift shop and look for the Spirit Bars if you're taking the trail around the parade, they're amazing!
  • Beautiful old church, rich in history and culture. We spent about 20 minutes or so there on an unrelated trip down to the Valley Forge area. Well worth the visit.
  • This is a gorgeous old chapel. Great for getting wedding / engagement photos taken in the fall
