  • It is just so beautiful. And i always feel a sense of peace when I enter the Church.
  • The gift shop/sack bar was great and the church is awesome
  • Gorgeous Chapel. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

  • 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!
