Washington’s Headquarters in Winter

Foresight has preserved and protected the Valley Forge legacy for over two hundred years, starting in 1877 when Anna Morris Holstein and the Valley Forge Centennial Memorial Association raised the money to purchase and preserve General Washington’s Headquarters at Valley Forge. Today, the Valley Forge Park Alliance continues the foresight and work of its founders. We are the stewards of the past and advocates for the future.

Our mission is to inspire appreciation of and support for Valley Forge National Historical Park. Please support our mission by joining as a member, making a contribution, or becoming a volunteer.
