Upper 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.
Upper Saucon Township is located in the southeastern corner of Lehigh County, just 60 miles north of Philadelphia and 80 miles east of Harrisburg. Upper Saucon Township is home to The Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley, a high-end Lehigh Valley mall which opened in 2006.
