Why We Like This Place

• This 1740 farmhouse played a role in the American Revolution. Situated at the edge of what is now Valley Forge National Historical Park, it hosted Louis Duportail, a French general and the army’s chief engineer, who designed fortifications here that enabled Washington’s troops to hold off an attack.

• The bucolic grounds offer the perfect setting. Three woodsy acres feature a charming wooden bridge, old-growth trees, large lawns and a gazebo—all excellent backdrops for your ceremony, cocktail reception and photos.

• You can celebrate inside and/or outside the gracious farmhouse. Invite your guests for dinner on the first floor of the house and take advantage of the lovely patio, which is tented from April through December and is ideal for dancing. You can also dine on the lawn—just rent an additional tent for up to 200!

• The farmhouse offers another perk: You and your bridal party can utilize the second-floor sitting room to get ready for the big day.
