Where History Marches off the Page

Historic sites abound in Valley Forge and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, and few places in the U.S. offer a more storied landscape for history buffs.

Valley Forge National Historical Park is, of course, the must-see attraction. Despite its beauty today, the site marks a solemn chapter in American history, when General George Washington lost more than 2,000 soldiers to the elements, hunger and disease but also forged a Continental Army of unprecedented will and perseverance.

But there is more to Montgomery County's history than Valley Forge. Visitors can also tour historic properties like Pottsgrove Manor, Pennypacker Mills and Peter Wentz Farmstead; see the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Beth Sholom Synagogue; admire the gothic architecture of the Bryn Athyn Historic District; or tour one of the area's many other attractions with historic appeal.
