Fort Washington

In 1977, after their defeat in the Battle of Germantown, George Washington and his troops were encamped in Fort Washington prior to their march to Valley Forge. Today, the Montgomery County town is a charming and beautiful suburb of Philadelphia. In addition to preserving its history, Fort Washington is also home to some of the best golfing and gardens in the area.
