Welcome to 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.
