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 Monocacy Schoolhouse, and coordinating local archaeological digs at these sites. We also actively provide local schoolchildren with educational programs that teach about life in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth centuries.

 On August 11th 5:30 pm - Join GWHS on a tour of the Roseberry Homestead located in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. Believed to have been built in the 1780's by a British officer and later NY Attorney General John Tabor Kempe, this beautiful structure is being restored by the Phillipsburg Historical Society. Depart the GWHS Campus at 5:30 pm and car pool to the site. Dinner at a local restaurant to follow.
