Huts at Muhlenberg Brigade Area

Valley Forge NHP

The Muhlenberg Brigade Area is the site of a brigade encampment led by General Peter Muhlenberg. The area consists of nine rebuilt log soldiers' huts facing a gravel company street. Nearby is a reconstructed redoubt, one of five earthen forts that helped anchor the defenses of Valley Forge.

This is the main site for Valley Forge's living history program. Rangers and volunteers dress in 18th Century attire to show visitors glimpses of life at the Valley Forge encampment. The Muhlenberg Brigade Area is the perfect place to learn about the construction of the encampment and the daily routine of the soldiers.

Please ask at the information desk in the visitor center for availability or check the Ranger Programs page.
