Coplay offers much to its residents

There is plenty of civic pride to go around in Coplay, a town with a population between 3,300 and 3,500 residents. The one-square-mile borough is sandwiched in by Whitehall Township on three sides, Hokendauqua, Stiles and North Coplay and the Lehigh River on its eastern border.

The borough offers its people much more to do than some other communities and townships with large homes situated on big lots.

Thomas Iron Company attracts immigrant workers

Thursday, January 10, 2013 by ED PANY, Curator, Atlas Cement CompanyMemorial Museum in Columns

In this new series, I'm visiting a unique hamlet, Darktown. Many of my readers have driven through the hamlet, situated on the banks of the Lehigh River in Hokendauqua, Whitehall Township.

Two of the proud residents are Mr. and Mrs. Michael Bednar. Mike is a passionate railroad buff who has written 10 well-documented books on railroad history. I decided to interview my friend Mike on a variety of topics. Poor Mike, my incessant questioning seems to unearth anything and everything that might interest my readers.
