Welcome

Lehigh Township is located along the western border of Northampton County, Pennsylvania. Lehigh is bordered by the Borough of Walnutport to the west, Moore Township to the east, Lower Towamensing Township to the north and Allen and North Whitehall Townships, to the south.

Lehigh Township was surveyed in 1735 by orders of Thomas Penn. It was proposed that 6,500 acres be set aside for Native Americans, but the land became a settlement of immigrants instead. Before October 1752, when the township was officially created, the area had been called Adjacents to Allen, which probably refers to adjacent Allen Township. Although some residents wanted the name Seimsy after an early Moravian Indian covert named Seim, the county court opted for the name Lehigh Township instead. For more history please visit the Lehigh Township Historical Society.
