Valley_Forge,_Pennsylvania

Valley Forge, Pennsylvania

The Village of Valley Forge is an unincorporated settlement located on the west side of Valley Forge National Historical Park at the confluence of Valley Creek and the Schuylkill River. The remaining village is in Schuylkill Township of Chester County, Pennsylvania, but once spanned Valley Creek into Montgomery County.

There is a partial re-creation of the historic village from the time of the revolution that is located next door, and just within the outskirts of the park.

Valley Forge is known by travelers in the Philadelphia area as the westbound control city on Interstate 76 (the Schuylkill Expressway), as it is where I-76 joins the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
