Home to the winter encampment in the late 1700s during the Revolutionary War, Valley Forge embodies the perseverance of the American spirit.

Valley Forge is the home of over 3,000 acres of historical significance from the Revolutionary War era. General George Washington had his troops occupy the area known as Valley Forge in Pennsylvania to recoup and prepare the soldiers before their march to take on the British forces. Valley Forge is under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service, and they strive to preserve and keep the story what happened all those years ago on this land alive. Over 20,000 soldiers stayed at Valley Forge to seek refuge during that winter in 1777 and 1778. 

There is a visitor center available to guests where a short film explaining the history of Valley Forge can be viewed. Several tour options are available at your disposal, such as self-driven tours, trolley tours, and private tours. Along these tours you will get to see the majority of the Valley Forge encampment and see the multiple monuments throughout this land. Aside from the deep history that is practically tangible here, it is a beautiful section of our country and has thriving plant and wildlife. Mt. Joy and Mt. Misery are forests here that visitors are welcome to hike through, and expect to encounter some deer, chipmunks, and the red fox. Valley Forge has played such a fundamental role in developing America.
