Breinigsville is an unincorporated community within the Upper Macungie Township in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. The census-designated place is home to over 4,000 people. The original residents of Upper Macungie were Native Americans of the Lenni Lenape tribe, a regional branch of the Algonquin Nation, sometimes referred to as Delaware Indians. They named the region “Maccongy” which translates to “bear swamp” or “bears’ feeding place.” Breinigsville was named for George Ludwig Breinig, a German immigrant who came to America on board the ship Lydia, arriving in Philadelphia on October 13, 1749. In the early 1800s, the village was a center for the mining of iron ore, furnishing employment to many men. Around 1855, the Allentown Railroad was graded through Breinigsville, but the tracks were never laid. In the 1860s, the Catasauqua and Fogelsville Railroad used the grade to build from Trexlertown, on its main line, into Breinigsville, as part of a branch to serve local limonite (iron ore) mines. At one time, the village had a lumber, grain, and coal depot, a carriage works, and a general store, which are no longer in existence. Today, Breinigsville has more than three times the open land required by the Lehigh County Planning Commission. This commitment to preserving a significant proportion of our community as open space is a living tribute to our rural heritage which ensures a cleaner, greener environment for future generations of Upper Macungie residents.
Another way to keep Breinigsville cleaner and greener is by using an environmentally friendly energy source like propane.
