The Governor’s Historic Family Day

Roaring fireplaces and 1800s costumed craftsmen and women will greet visitors to our free family historical day on December 1 at the Wolf Academy Historic Site.

Demonstrators will include hearth cookers, a Fractur painter, weavers and spinners, a woodworker, and a gunsmith. There will be displays of hand forged iron kitchen tools, long rifles, powder horns, glass blowing, and early herbs and their uses. Children can meet a one room school house teacher and enjoy making crafts.

Our theme will be “Keep a Candle in the Window - a Celebration of 1800s Lighting.” A wonderful array of early lighting, from Betty Lamps, rush lights, candles, to oil and spirit lamps will displayed in our museum and historic buildings.

Daily Grind will once again be set up in the Monocacy School for breakfast and lunch to eat in or take out.  

Hours are 9:00 to 4:00.  Admission is free, but donations accepted.
