Across the highway from Valley Forge National Park is the First Presbyterian Church of Port Kennedy.   The building was finished in 1846, though the tower was added in 1909 to house a half-ton church bell.  Port Kennedy was the name of the town originally, but technically it no longer exists.  It was originally settled by Scottish and Irish Protestants in the first part of the 19th century.  In 1965, road construction cut off the church and it now sits on a dead end next to a busy expressway.   Below is a photo from an online map that gives you a better look.
