Description

The reconstructed cabins give a sense of how hard conditions were in camp as the soldiers fought disease, starvation, and weather. 12 or more soldiers lived in each hut, sleeping in cramped bunks. The cabins were built within days of the army's arrival in Valley Forge. It is said that Washington devised a contest to see who could build them the fastest.

On the Road: Just a short walk away from a parking area off of N Outer Line Drive.
