Title located on the top of the base.

The Washington Headquarters of 1760 at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania is located in Montgomery County. This Georgian style stone building is the place where Washington spent six months of the encampment making plans, meeting with advisors, and figuring out how to continue the war efforts. The house in which Washington stayed was known as the Isaac Potts House. It was acknowledged as a National Historic Landmark in 1972. Today, the building has been restored and is now part of the Valley Forge National Park Service. The building is open to the public for guided tours and visitation as a historical site and museum.
