About Bethlehem

Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, located in the Lehigh Valley region, has a rich history dating back to its founding in 1741 by Moravian settlers. The city's name is derived from the biblical town of Bethlehem, which means "house of bread" in Hebrew. Bethlehem quickly became known for its thriving industrial economy, with a particular emphasis on steel production. In fact, Bethlehem Steel Corporation, once the second-largest steel producer in the United States, was headquartered in the city for nearly 150 years.

Freight transportation played a crucial role in Bethlehem's industrial success. The city was strategically positioned along major transportation routes, including the Lehigh Canal and the Delaware and Lehigh Navigation System. These waterways allowed for the efficient movement of raw materials and finished goods, contributing to Bethlehem's growth as an industrial powerhouse. Additionally, Bethlehem was served by several railroads, such as the Lehigh Valley Railroad and the Central Railroad of New Jersey, further enhancing its connectivity to regional and national markets.
