The Northeastern School District serves Mount Wolf Borough's educational needs. The Northeastern Regional police protects the Borough's homes while the Eagle Fire Company responds to any emergencies. The Borough is mostly residential, with several small businesses and some industries, which are all listed in the Contacts.
The beginning for the area was in the early 1800’s, as a mid-way train stop between Emigsville, Liverpool (now Manchester Borough) and New Holland (now Saginaw). The station was first called Mount Campbell in honor of Thomas Campbell, who was instrumental in urging rail completion to Harrisburg. In the late 1850’s, the station and post office were later known as Mount Wolf after George H. Wolf, who was the store and warehouse owner, stationmaster and postmaster. Mount Wolf became incorporated as a self governing Borough on August 23, 1910.
