  • Worth stopping by for if you are visiting the Valley Forge Historic Park. Beautiful inside and out. It won't take long to walk through and every little donation is very helpful in preserving the chapel. (since the chapel does not receive any funding that goes to the Valley Forge Historic Park)
  • I just love that I live so close to all of this history. So informative. A lot of events. Trails to walk or ride. Wildlife. History. It's amazing!!
