The museum, housed in the Monocacy School on the campus, holds an interesting display of found artifacts from the Wolf Academy Historic Site, and also, early hand forged tools crafted in the area, school books from the 1800's and a small section of an early school room. An antique toy collection bequeathed to the society from the late John Meixell fills two cases.
Revolving displays of textiles, tools, farming, early lighting, of the Pennsylvania Germans and Scots-Irish who settled the area, help tell our story. We are concentrating on Governor George Wolf, the 1800's and the public education he fought to provide to everyone in the Commonwealth. Wolf's work to expand railroads, the canal system, the printing industry, improve mining conditions and move the state forward will be highlighted in coming additions to the exhibits. All of this began on our campus with his education here.
The museum will be undergoing a redesign with new cases, exhibits, and interactive displays, to tell the story of PA's 7th Governor, George Wolf, who received his education in the 1785 stone Wolf Academy, on the campus.
