Every library is different so save time by asking for assistance in navigating the publications. If you tell them what you are looking for, they will lead you to specific pubs.

This is a small place in the middle of downtown, but it has some real nice informative displays. The admission is not large. We enjoyed the Lincoln artifact and photo exhibit, but be advised that this will be leaving shortly, but I'm sure will be replaced. The Revolutionary war exhibit was nice. The history of the Lehigh Valley is quite... More

My wife and I visited the Center today and found it fascinating. It is well done and ven we as non-Americans could follow and understand. I hope that US Citizens are proud of the Center - you need to be.

This building houses much history of Lehigh county and has interesting temporary exhibits at times--baseball is the area, Lincoln artifacts, presidental history, etc. It is run by the Historical Society and is on the same property as the historic Trout Hall built in 1770.

Want to know why PA. may be the world's next oil giant? The unmatched majesty of our Hess's Dept. Store, famous actors portraying a likely debate Jefferson Davis & Abe Lincoln might have had discussing the pros & cons of beliefs, which lead to the Civil War.

The Lehigh County Heritage Center in Allentown, PA, is a small museum with lots to offer. We have seen several exhibits there, but a very memorable one was the Lincoln exhibit several years ago. It was a comprehensive exhibit with artifacts, photographs, and other memorabilia of our 16th president. It is a worthwhile place to spend an afternoon.
