Lehigh Valley Passport To History


This August, local historical sites are partnering to host Lehigh Valley Passport to History Month. The month is a celebration of local history, stories, and the community that bring Lehigh Valley history to life. Each weekend in August, different participating locations will open their doors to the public with tours, activities, and programs for visitors of all ages.
