Fort Washington State Park, Montgomery County, PA

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Fort Washington State Park is located in Montgomery County, PA. It was camp for George Washington and the Continental Army before marching to Valley Forge.

The park is free to the public and is open daily from sunrise to sunset. The exact spot where Washington’s cannons stood has been turned into a State Park. A deck has been erected that overlooks the Wissahickon Valley. From here, you can walk in Washington’s footsteps as you look out toward Germantown. At the end of the deck, a special “wildlife area” is being nurtured. A public log shows sightings of nearly 60 different species of butterflies. The same holds true with birds. The end of the deck reveals a spectrum of song and humming birds numbering near 200. Every year volunteers conduct a raptor census while the hawks are migrating.

Valley Forge

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

Valley Forge National Historical Park was created to preserve our nation’s history and tell the story of the Continental Army during the winter of 1777-78.

As the winter weather turned more severe, Washington started moving his troops to Chester County. He hoped Valley Forge would offer the army a better place to build log cabins and supply the troops. On December 11, 1777, Washington pulled out of the Whitemarsh area. By December 18th, they had arrived in Valley Forge.
