Danielsville is an unincorporated community located in northeastern Pennsylvania. This quiet village, part of Lehigh Township in Northampton County, offers residents and visitors alike beautiful views and a wealth of recreational opportunities. With an almost nonexistent crime rate and an unemployment rate that is much lower than the state average, Danielsville provides a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of more populated areas.
In 1752, the settlement known as the “Adjacents of Allen” was renamed “Lehigh Township.” The township’s present boundaries were established in 1765. By 1770, more than 300 persons lived within its borders.
In 1850, the population of Lehigh Township numbered 2,343. Farm production included more than 33,000 pounds of butter. Major crops were wheat, rye, corn, oats, buckwheat, potatoes and hay. Three gristmills, two sawmills and an oil mill provided additional employment.
In 1848, Charles B. Daniels bought the lease for the Little Gap Slate Quarry. He operated this quarry for 15 years. Many men worked at the quarry, and their employer constructed several buildings to provide for them and their families. He also served as the new village’s postmaster. The workers gave Danielsville its name in gratitude for all that Charles B. Daniels did for them.
In 2011, only 2 percent of residents had incomes below the poverty level. Approximately 3,000 persons currently reside in Danielsville, and most residents own their own homes.
The Northampton Area School District provides public education. Elementary schools are close to home. Once Danielsville students complete the sixth grade, they continue their studies at facilities located in the Borough of Northampton.
