The Valley Forge railroad station, completed in 1913 to service visitors to Washington's headquarters and the village of Valley Forge, was constructed of native sandstone and recalls the time when rail excursions were popular before the widespread use of private automobiles. The tracks of the Philadelphia, Germantown, and Norristown railroad, predecessor to Conrail, were first utilized in 1832 to meet the demands of industrialization.
