Historical Marker Celebration Day

by Office of Marketing | November 20, 2012
Valley Forge Christian College and the Historical Society of Phoenixville Area (HSPA) partnered together to create a Historical Marker Celebration Day. A state issued roadside marker recognizing the former Valley Forge General Hospital was unveiled to more than 200 people during a program highlighting the significance of this site which operated from 1943 to 1974 and served war casualties during World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. The day included the showcase of vintage military vehicles, military re-enactors, artifact displays, a photo booth, oral histories, walking tours of campus that showcased pictures of what each building looked like during that era, film screening of the movie “Bright Victory” that was filmed at VFGH campus and “You’d Have to be Blind Not to See It,” the return of numerous veterans, and of course the debut of the commemorative landmark.
