Welcome to the Governor Wolf Historical Society


The Governor Wolf Historical Society was founded in February of 1958 after the Wolf Academy Restoration Society and Bath Area Historical Society merged under the presidency of Elias W. Spengler.

Today the Society is active in preserving the Lehigh Valley's rich historic heritage.   We are restoring the Ralston-McKeen House, Wolf Academy and the Siegfried Log Cabin, and coordinating local rchaeological digs at these sites.   We also actively provide local schoolchildren with educational programs that teach about life in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth centuries.


 Eagle Scout Project:

On August 31st at GWHS...Very exciting day as we broke ground for the wood shed. As you can see, footings were dug by scouting youth and volunteers and we learned that Pennsylvania has a lot of rocks. We found two marbles donated back to GWHS. Work was progressing nicely until the rain came. This project is undertaken by Austin Firth, Life Scout from Troop 352, Bethlehem, PA. Austin will be constructing a 16' X 10' wood shed.
