The Adams County Historical Society is a private non-profit entity, which serves as the official repository for Adams County archival records. The Society has over 700 linear feet of original county records. These county records are placed in acid-free storage and in some instances, finding aids are created to increase accessibility. Many of these records are useful for genealogical research including courthouse records, tax records, and estate files.
Does the Adams County Historical Society have a museum?
The Society's 3-D object collection is currently inaccessible. The collection is stored off-site while the Society is headquartered at the Wolf House. It is unknown how long it will be before the collections will once again be available for public viewing. However, portions of the Society's collections are on display at the Gettysburg Heritage Center and Gettysburg Seminary Ridge Museum.
