French Generals Lafayette and Duportail served on George Washington’s headquarters staff during the Valley Forge encampment 1777–1778. Today a short, wooded walk connects their winter quarters in Tredyffrin Township and Valley Forge National Historic Park. Guides will present French connection stories during our country’s founding. Learn about Tredyffrin’s Great Valley agrarian life at the newly opened Living History Center in the reconstructed Jones Log Barn, Chester County’s newest heritage destination. Finally, enjoy a cool creek-side walk over one of Pennsylvania’s remaining metal truss bridges with a guide from PennDOT’s cultural resources staff.
