    A place of quiet reflection that blends religion with patriotism. You can pray and think about those who sacrificed much to birth this country. Much to look at and think about.  more »

    We were wowed by the splendor of this place. It really took our breath away. It was beautiful to see how they've dedicated a section to people from different wars.  more »

    The Washington Memorial Chapel is a gem of a place, situated on an enclave of privately-owned land within the Valley Forge battlefield. This chapel is the home of an active parish of the Episcopal Church, with multiple services weekly. A lot of the iconography is understandably oriented towards Washington and other military figures, but not exclusively. There is also a campanile with a full peal of bells. Don't miss the cannons mounted outside!

    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.
