Surrounded by 3,500 acres of rolling green meadows and towering trees, The Philander Chase Knox Estate provides an oasis of natural beauty for your rustic and elegant event. This historic estate is located just over the covered bridge in a picturesque setting within Valley Forge National Historic Park, the site on which General George Washington’s army encamped from 1777 until 1778 during the American Revolutionary War. Originally built in the late 1700s, The Estate once served as the summer home of Philander Chase Knox, former U.S. Attorney General, U.S. Secretary of State and U.S. Senator and now serves as the perfect location to host events that are truly revolutionary.
Prepare for your special day surrounded by historic elegance in a private bridal suite and a private bridesmaid’s suite each featuring their own powder room. The beautifully manicured lawn looks out to colorful wildflowers and the charming Valley Creek, creating the perfect backdrop for exchanging vows. For cocktail hour, your guests will enjoy the spectacular view from the slate patio or mingle amongst the period furniture in the living and dining rooms. The main event will take your guests under the state of the art, fully carpeted 50 x 80 ft. tent, where they will dine, seated at gorgeous, reclaimed barn wood farm tables. Take your rustic, elegant event up a notch with the built-in special event lighting that set the tone for any occasion! Located right in Valley Forge National Historic Park, Mother Nature and American history come together to provide limitless photo opportunities!
