Lower Saucon Township
Saucon Township was originally established in 1742 as part of Bucks County and incorporated in 1743. In 1752, county lines were changed, and the large township became part of Northampton County. It was divided into Upper and Lower Saucon in 1753. Both townships were part of Northampton County until 1812, when Upper Saucon became part of Lehigh County.
Covering an area of 23 square miles, Lower Saucon is known for its lush farmlands, peaceful woodlands and gently rolling hills. Although the township has undergone rapid development in recent years, much of the landscape retains its rustic character.
