Sprawling along the west bank of the Lehigh River, Slatington, Pennsylvania is a historic borough that was originally inhabited by the Lenni-Lenape Native Americans before the first European settlers arrived in 1737.
While a sawmill was originally built in the area, it wasn’t until the 19th century that two Welshmen discovered slate and a quarry was established, with Slatington officially incorporated in 1864. Today its historic streets make an attractive base to rent an RV and explore the sights of Lehigh County.
