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

Program: Tues, Feb 10, 2015 at 7pm

A presentation on the Toy Makers of Pennsylvania will be given at the Governor Wolf Historical Society‘s monthly meeting on Tuesday, February 10th. An example of a local toy maker would be Dent Hardware Company of Fullerton, PA who made cast iron and aluminum transportation toys and banks. Other local toy makers include Conestoga Company of Allentown, Jones & Bixler of Freemansburg, William Shimer & Son of Freemansburg and Crayola of Easton. There are many more from the state of Pennsylvania. Join us for a look back at vintage toys!
