Wenonah Inn Silverware

Kathryn MacGregor's donation of Wenonah Military Academy items included this silverware, which was first used at the Wenonah Inn, and then at the Wenonah Military Academy.

The Wenonah Inn was open from about 1880 until 1904 when it became the Wenonah Military Academy.

Wenonah Military Academy Copper Plate for postcard.

Wenonah resident Lauren Leer donated this copper plate, which was used for printing postcards of the Wenonah Military Academy, to the Wenonah Historical Society. The inscription on the postcard reads "Wenonah Military Academy; Wenonah, NJ; Pub. by H. Heinkel." Larry Smith hopes to print an actual postcard.
