Visited the chapel for the first time today..Beautiful and welcoming! It was a perfect serene setting and full of great photo opportunities. The gentleman who reviewed it's history with us was an added treat! We will definitely return to enjoy a different season.
Located within the Valley Forge National Historical Park , both a national memorial built as a tribute to General George Washington and is an active Episcopal parish. Very impressive structure, inside and out. Came to visit the justice bell which is a close replica to the liberty bell, but was informed by the park ranger at the visitor center that the bell was taken for maintenance . The bell was created to promote the cause for women’s suffrage. Will try attend a service next time we pass by the area.
