We stopped here on our tour of Valley Forge, and luckily had hired an amazing tour guide, Randy, that was able to tell us the history of the place. The chapel was absolutely beautiful and well worth the stop.

This was at the end of our loop touring Valley Forge. The chapel is lovely and the architecture is worth a look. There is gift / snack shop on site and we took the opportunity for a light lunch.

The Memorial Chapel is a beautiful, quiet place. I was able to capture several gorgeous photos. We spent serene moments here. We visited after hours and didn't get to see the inside, but the outside was lovely.
