The administrator for the Pennsylvania Military Museum in Boalsburg will take over as temporary administrator at Drake Well Museum and Park when current administrator Barbara Zolli steps down at the first of the year.
Chuck Smith will start temporary duties at Drake Well on January 2. Smith has also worked at Fort Pitt Museum in Pittsburgh.
A search for Zolli’s successor may take up to three months. That search will be conducted by the Pennsylvania Historic and Museum Commission.
Meanwhile, Drake Well continues to look for volunteers to conduct tours for the public at the venue located just outside Titusville.
