Two Valley Forges

This Valley Forge is one of two communities in Pennsylvania with the same name. The other Valley Forge is roughly 70 miles (110 km) east, in Chester County. The other village is the one associated with the pivotal winter encampment of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. Since the Continental Congress spent that same winter in York, near this Valley Forge, there is room for confusion. The other Valley Forge is also the control city used on Interstate 76.
