Throughout Montgomery County
Patriot Trails is a comprehensive online way to link together our most intriguing historical sites, offering a full day (or multi-day) means of digging into the Revolutionary War in all its facets. The adventure can begin in the Visitor Center at Valley Forge National Historical Park, whose indoor museum features plenty of artifacts from the 1777-1778 encampment. From there, it's a short jaunt to places like Peter Wentz Farmstead, Pennypacker Mills and Pottsgrove Manor, all of which quickly welcome winter guests inside.
