Thankfulness at Valley Forge National Historical Park American Treasure Tour
One Day Tour ~ Sunday, November 22, 2020
or Sunday, November 29, 2020
In this time of giving thanks, let’s revisit the lives of the Continental Army during the winter of 1777-78 at Valley Forge National Historical Park. In the dead of winter 1777, George Washington led an already weary Continental Army here where they spent the next six months making this land their home. Lucky for us, we’ll take a comfortable, warm bus ride around the park, stopping at various points of interest to pique your curiosity. The Muhlenberg Brigade huts each housing twelve men, rows of cannons lining Artillery Park, and Washington’s Headquarters are among the few sights to see. This will surely be a humbling experience that will evoke the spirit of this season. The mood will lighten as we gratefully indulge in a delicious lunch to fuel us as we experience the rest of our day. A more fun and positive view of gratitude will fall into place when we visit the American Treasure Tour Museum. Here we will see clearly how one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. A trolley will take us through a maze of collectibles from self-playing orchestras to life sized clown statues and everything imaginable in between. There will also be time to explore the Music Room and Classic Car exhibit on your own. So many memories of things long forgotten will be revealed in this fun, eclectic space making us thankful for the happy experiences we’ve had.
