Public Library of Catasauqua: Catasauqua Borough has a rich, proud history

Wednesday, August 1, 2018 by The Press in Columns

Everywhere we look in Catasauqua, there is a reminder of our town’s proud history.

Here at the Public Library of Catasauqua, a dedicated and very knowledgeable group of volunteers has been systematically sorting and cataloging all manner of documents that have everything to do with the town’s history. At the turn of the 20th century, there were more millionaires in Catasauqua than in any other town in the country. Those fortunes were made in the 19th century during Catasauqua’s golden age of iron.
