Positioned along the shoreline of the Lehigh River, Northampton is a bustling borough in eastern Pennsylvania that is known for its scenic beauty, historical architecture and invaluable contributions to the cement industry.
The town’s pride in its blue-collar roots shines in its historic buildings, such as the Victorian-era Siegfried Train Station and the retro Roxy Theater, which has been a staple of the community since 1921. The Atlas Cement Museum has diligently preserved Northampton’s rich history through exhibits of photographs, artifacts and murals.
To experience the town’s local flavors, just stop by the small but growing Uptown Northampton Farmers Market. Every Tuesday evening, from May to October, vendors pitch tents in the Main Street lot next to the Roxy. You’ll find everything from kiffles and kettle popcorn to fresh brown eggs and garden seeds.
The Northampton Recreation Center is a year-round community hub. The center provides exercise equipment and classes, sponsors an annual golf tournament, plans casino bus trips and hosts youth dances. Summer days are generally spent hanging around the Northampton Municipal Park Complex. This 19-acre outdoor space in the center of town includes a swimming pool, picnic pavilions, ball fields and evening concerts at the Bandshell.
When the sun is shining, you will find plenty of local residents at Canal Street Park. The winding Heritage Trail bordering the Lehigh River is a popular place for walking, jogging and working out on the exercise stations. The lighted basketball and tennis courts stay busy while the wooden gazebo is a favorite place for exchanging vows or taking family pictures.
This small Lehigh Valley town rose to fame at the turn of the 20th century for its production of cement. The Atlas Company mined enough local limestone, clay, chalk and shale to not only supply three-quarters of the world’s cement needs but also to singlehandedly build the Panama Canal. The name of every Atlas employee is immortalized on a wall in the company’s museum.
