The Friends of Valley Forge is now the
Valley Forge Park Alliance

In 1976, Valley Forge became a national park and a group of visionary citizens united as “Friends” to support it. Over forty years later, we have grown into a national alliance of corporations, organizations and individual who share the goals of supporting and protecting the hallowed grounds of Valley Forge but also recognize an ever growing community that extends beyond the boundaries of the Park. To celebrate this milestone, we are now the Valley Forge Park Alliance.

Our mission is to advocate for Valley Forge National Historical Park, to enhance the visitor experience and to promote public appreciation of the Park’s historic, environmental and recreational resources. We welcome you to join the Alliance and help us to support and preserve Valley Forge National Historical Park!

Washington’s Headquarters, also known as the Isaac Potts House, has the distinction of being the structure General Washington used as his headquarters during the 1777–1778 Valley Forge Encampment. The building could be considered the “Pentagon” of its time, as it was the place where Washington and his highest-ranking officers worked and lived during the encampment. Start your tour of the entire Headquarters complex at the restored Train Station. Enjoy an opportunity to visit the park after hours and learn about the Valley Forge encampment from George Washington himself!
