Did you, your parents, or siblings attend one of the East Allen Township schools? Did you or a relative teach in these schools? Then you are invited to a schools reunion on Sunday, October 27, from 2 to 4 PM at the Wolf Academy.
The Governor Wolf Historical Society is sponsoring this get together to give everyone a chance to reminisce and share their memories of the schools, teachers, and classmates. Everyone is encouraged to bring photos, schoolbooks, report cards, schoolwork, or any other documents that they have for show and tell.
The East Allen Township School District had five schools – the Monocacy School on Jacksonville Road (at the Gov. Wolf Historical Society site) , the Knauss School on Rt. 329 (now the township municipal building), the Steinmetz School on Colony Drive, the Union School on Rt. 248, and the Oxford (or Snyder) School at St. Peter’s Church.
The last three were one room schools that were sold in 1947 and are now residences. After these schools closed, East Allen students in first through sixth grade attended the three room Monocacy School or the two room Knauss School. With consolidation and the establishment of the Northampton Area School District, the last two schools closed about 1962.
There is no cost to attend, and no reservations are required. If you are unable to attend, but have photos you would like to share, or if you have questions, call Linda at 610-905-0007 or Barb at 610-262-6977.
