Famous as the camp for the Continental Army during the winter of 1777 - 1778, the park contains Washington's Headquarters, several monuments, reconstructed campsites and a visitor center.

The site is where the Continental Army spent the winter of 1777–1778 near Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, during the American Revolutionary War.

Established in 1893, Valley Forge was Pennsylvania’s first state park.

On the 4th of July, 1976, the park was transferred to the National Park System as Valley Forge National Historical Park.

The modern park features historical and recreated buildings and structures; memorials; and a newly renovated visitor center, which shows a short film and has several exhibits.
