Holiday History Family Day

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

Vendors will be selling handmade crafts. Craft demonstrations include hearth cooking, weaving and spinning, furniture making, and more. There will be displays of hand forged iron kitchen tools, long rifles, powder horns. A PA Civil War winter encampment will take place. Children can meet a one room school house teacher and enjoy making crafts. Strolling carolers and pony rides (weather permitting). Decorated fresh wreath and swag sale.

Our theme this year is “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.
