A lot has changed in Lehigh County since its last official history in 1914. Farms have become suburbs and suburbs have grown into small cities. Industries that seemed permanent in 1950 are gone. And a county whose culture was rooted in northern Europe now is a multicultural global crossroads, a microcosm of America. In light of these and many other changes, in celebration of its Bicentennial in 2012 Lehigh County leadership has decided an update is in order.
While giving a brief backward glance at the first 100 years, the primary focus will be on the changes that have swept the region since 1912. Profusely illustrated the new history will offer insights into how Lehigh County faced the challenges of the 20th century. Most importantly it will focus on the people some prominent others unknown from many walks of life who have created this unique diversity. Lehigh County, in celebrating the roots of the proud past, will look forward to a dynamic future.
