The Adams County Historical Society's collection is vast. The Society currently uses PastPerfect Museum Software to aid in the management of all the objects, archives, photographs, and books. It is estimated that the collection exceeds 1,000,000 individual items. The volunteers, interns, and staff diligently work to gain intellectual control over the Society's holdings. This work is conducted to a professional standard with the ultimate goal to give this collection the care that it deserves and make it available to the public.
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.
