Visiting the Historic North Catasauqua, PA

The slip and fall attorneys in North Catasauqua, PA, at Justice Guardians have kindly offered the following details on the community and its dynamic history.

North Catasauqua

The borough of North Catasauqua sits in the western section of Northampton County, Pennsylvania. It takes up 473.6 acres and includes 12.8 acres of water, such as the Catasauqua Creek and the Lehigh River. Neighboring communities include Hokendauqua, Northhampton, Coplay, and Allentown. 

Early History

In 1907, a petition was signed by many citizens of western Allen Township to form the borough officially. This petition was submitted, and it was incorporated in June. Shortly after the incorporation, William H. Thomas became the first burgess, an office similar to a mayor.

The community rapidly expanded its businesses as new residents began to move in. Soon a police department was established in addition to the Charotin Fire Department, which was formed in 1909. In 1911 a building that combined the firehouse and municipality office was constructed. Before this, the fire department stored its equipment in the stables at Hoffman and Follweiler.

There were several places of worship throughout the borough, including:

  • St. Lawrence Church (1857)
  • St. Andrew’s Church (1903)
  • Holy Trinity Church (1903)

Community Development

The North Catasauqua Park and Playground, also known as the William J. Albert Memorial Park, opened in 1947. It sits on 4 acres of land bought from Northampton County. It became a popular hangout for the residents and frequently hosted many concerts, carnivals, picnics, and even the annual Christmas tree. In the early years, the park included:

  • a war memorial - complete with flagpole and monument (erected in 1945)
  • playground equipment
  • a baseball diamond
  • 95 Sycamore trees

The inclusion of the Willowbrook Golf Course played an important part in the neighborhood’s development. Initially, it was a private five-hole course built by Colonel James Fuller on the former Willowbrook Farm Estate. It was founded with the intent to entertain friends and business executives that were guests of the Fuller Company. However, in 1934, the golf course opened its doors to the public in order to pay for its expenses. It continued growing over the years becoming a popular course for both locals and avid golfers. 

The borough is home to the full-service boutique and event center, Mosaic & Co. The venue was founded in 2012 and offers residents and guests a location for weddings, corporate events, and other social gatherings. 

Demographics

Approximately 2,849 residents live in the borough in 2010, forming 1,181 households and 809 families. The racial demographics of the neighborhood was the following:

  • 95.2% White
  • 1.2% African American
  • 0.1% Native American
  • 0.9% Asian
  • 1.7% from other races
  • 1% from two or more races
  • 5.2% Hispanic or Latino

The income median for the community was $39,375 per household and for a family was $47,214. Men brought in a median income of $35,324 versus $26,250 for women.
