The Wolf Academy Historical Site - Home of 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 at the "Wolf Academy Historic Site". We are restoring the Ralston-McKeen House and the Wolf Academy, and coordinating local archaeological digs at these locations. We also actively provide local schoolchildren with educational programs that teach about life in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth centuries. The Wolf Academy, the Richard Nye Memorial Garden, the Ralston-McKeen House and the Monocacy Schoolhouse may be rented for your special event.





Governor Wolf Historical Society Museum contains historical items from the local area.   

The Museum is open on the 3rd Saturday of the month from April through November.  The Hours are from 1 pm to 3 pm.  The Museum is also open during the GWHS annual events such as the Antiques Show, the Garden Faire and the Christmas House Tour.
