Incorporated in 1743, the first settlement in the area that is now Upper Saucon Township was made in 1730 by English, German and Welsh settlers. The first public road was laid out in 1750 from Heller's Tavern, Lanark, across the Lehigh Mountains. A Mennonite Meeting House was built near Coopersburg in 1738. [1]


Upper Saucon Township [2] is situated in the southeastern corner of Lehigh County located approximately 60 miles north of Philadelphia, 80 miles east of Harrisburg, and 90 miles west of New York City. The Township is part of the New York Metropolitan Area. And, for decades, Upper Saucon has been a bedroom community for cities in the Lehigh Valley region including Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton.

The Township is characteristic of rolling hills, farmland, and suburban style development with easy access to PA Route 309, Interstate 78, and US Route 22. It is these characteristics and location that have made Upper Saucon a very attractive place to live for those wanting a somewhat rural atmosphere with access to regional amenities.
