Description

Although this church is not an official part of the park, many people stop here to admire the architecture and impressive stained glass. It was built to commemorate George Washington and the entire Continental Army and has a great deal of military imagery inside and out. There are pretty courtyards and statues outside. Some locals still attend services here.

On the Road: Located directly off of Valley Forge Park Road.
