A federal lawsuit seeks to reverse a recent zoning approval that clears the way for an American Revolution museum to be built on private land within Valley Forge National Historical Park.

Neighbors of the park and a nonprofit advocacy group filed a suit Monday in U.S. District in Philadelphia.

They say the Lower Providence zoning board shouldn't have approved the American Revolution Center's plans for a museum and conference center on 78 acres it owns within the boundary of the park.

The opponents say it would undermine the National Park Service's role in managing Valley Forge National Historical Park.
