Lower Milford Township

Lower Milford Township is a township in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. It is a suburb of Allentown, Pennsylvania, in the Lehigh Valley region of the state.

 

The population of Lower Milford Township was 3,617 at the 2000 census.

History

Lower Milford Township was incorporated in 1853 when the area was separated form Upper Milford Township. Prior to 1738, both Upper and Lower Milford Townships were part of Milford Township, Bucks County. The King's High Road (King's Highway) was surveyed in the mid 1730's and immigrants began to settle in the valleys along the Hosensack Creek and its tributaries. Mills and other early industry began to flourish.

The customs and traditions of the early, mostly German, immigrants remain evident in the historic homes, barns, mills and other structures so carefully preserved. Maps, history and photographs of our township were compiled onto a book prepared for our nation's bicentennial. Copies are available for sale at the township office.
