Described by President Woodrow Wilson as "The Shrine of the American People", the Washington Memorial Chapel was erected between 1903 and 1917 as a memorial to the leadership and character of George Washington. An Episcopal church set in the heart of Valley Forge National Historical Park, but not part of it, the open doors of the Chapel welcome thousands of visitors and worshipers annually. Weekly services are open to members and nonmembers alike.
