It’s no wonder the Lehigh County Historical Society is dubbed one of the largest historical societies in America with the impressive collection they maintain. With more than 35,000 historical artifacts, 80,000 vintage photographs, and 3-million+ documents that facilitate research on genealogy, maps, newspapers, photographs, county records, and so much more, their staff is sure to assist with your research and curiosity needs.

The Society administers also seven museum sites that date from Colonial America through the Industrial Revolution.

• Historic 1770 Trout Hall
• Historic 1756 Troxell-Steckel Farm Museum
• Historic 1893 Claussville School
• Haines Mill
• Lockridge Furnace Museum
• Saylor Park Cement Kilns
• And, the newest 30,000 square foot, Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum which is the headquarters for the Society. 

Grants from the Air Products Foundation, the Century Fund, the Charles H. Hoch Foundation, the Julius & Katheryn Hommer Foundation, the Harry C. Trexler Trust, members of the Society, and countless others who have made donations, are the backbone to the numerous exhibits, events, and other operations of the Lehigh County Historical Society.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Historical and Museum Commission also supports the Lehigh County Historical Society by providing a grant.
