Spent about two hours driving the grounds. Was especially happy with the Washington headquarters. Incredible to see where they spend six months in the cold.

Not only is this place rich with history, its rich with scenery. We loved checking out the buildings and seeing how the soldiers lived. The countryside that surrounds this area is beautiful. I would recommend a stop here to anyone visiting Pennsylvania

Yes cause the last tour starts at 3pm and it’s a 45-minute tour. I recommend to book your tour online as it gets filled quickly.
