  • 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.
  • 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!
  • A beautiful old church that is dedicated to Washington. While I have not attended a service or concert here, I've heard that they are exceptional. Parking is limited, and pulling out on the road can be difficult at times, but this is a must stop when you are visiting Valley Forge.
  • Friendly staff and beautiful architecture. Too bad there wasn't a building representing Washington's actual denomination...
  • Beautiful church in Valley forge dedicated to Washington with amazing hikes all around the park
