 The WNCC has arranged a trolley tour of Valley Forge National Historical Park.
The tour is 90 minutes with a park tour guide. Our discounted rate is $15.00 per
person. The trolley has seating for 34 people, so it will be first come, first served.

Transportation to the park will be on your own. It is a short, direct route from the
hotel. We have arranged for boxed lunches for an additional fee. The trolley tour
is at 12:45 p.m. so time will be limited to have lunch before the tour leaves.
Click the following links to register for the trolley tour and for the boxed lunch menu.
There is no admission charge to the park itself.



Highlights from the 2013 Convention

This year's convention was held at the Hilton Garden Inn, Ft. Washington, PA for the second consecutive year, and was hand's down excellent from start to finish. Members enjoyed a full two days of Wallace Nutting events and camaraderie, beginning with Friday's Auction and Hospitality Suite. Saturday began with the Buy/Sell/Trade set-up followed by the Business Meeting; Presentations; and Show & Tell. We then had a bus trip to Winterthur Museum where a tram ride through the beautiful estate grounds preceded our tour of the exquisitely appointed Henry Francis DuPont home. A highlight of this tour was an exclusive showing of Wallace Nutting furniture pieces and reference material not usually seen by the general public. The day was then capped off by our annual Club Dinner and final get-together in the Hospitality Suite.
