The Brandywine Battlefield park is a seasonal park that is only open from the late spring until the late fall. Admission is free. There are several historic homes on the property. The volunteers are very knowledgeable.

The small park and visitor center are worth a stop if you're headed for Valley Forge (as I was), because it is the preview to the next chapter in the history of the Revolutionary War. There isn't much to see, though, and no way to...More
