Lehigh County, PA History

Lehigh County is bordered by Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Montgomery, Northampton and Schuykill Counties. Its county seat is Allentown. It is bounded by the Blue Mountain chain in the north and South Mountain in the south. Settlement began in the mid 1700s.  The Moravians and the Mennonites, both communal sects, and the Reformed and Lutheran denominations, who at times shared their church buildings, arrived from the Palatinate region of Germany. The late 18th and early 19th centuries saw the development of an agrarian economy. The city of Bethlehem still bears evidence of its strong Moravian heritage.

The Lehigh Canal, which was completed in 1829, provided transportation for coal and lumber going to Philadelphia. There was an economic panic in 1837, a flood in 1841 and a fire in1848 that destroyed the center of Allentown. The town was rebuilt with brick by 1855. Then the powder mills, cement mills and blast furnaces as well as slate and zinc quarries began to appear. Steam engines provided power. The Civil War brought a surge in the local economy.  After another panic which occurred in 1873, furniture factories and silk mills appeared, and there was an influx of European immigrants. A major employer was Bethlehem Steel. Bethlehem joined Allentown as a full-blown city.

Lehigh County has four colleges and universities: Cedar Crest in Allentown, DeSales University in Center Valley, Muhlenburg University in Allentown and Penn State Lehigh Valley in Fogelsville.
