Settled in 1805, Catasauqua is a borough in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania that is colloquially referred to as Catty. Historically, manufacturing was Catasauqua's principal industry, and, in 1839, it was the location of the first manufactured anthracite iron in the nation. In 1840, the anthracite iron industry was founded, making Catasauqua the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution in the United States. Catasauqua is home to two different neighborhoods listed on the National Register of Historic Places. One is Biery's Port, located along the Lehigh River and named for an early family of prominence; the other is known as "the mansion district," and comprises Victorian homes once owned by wealthy residents. By 1900, Catasauqua boasted 5,000 residents, and had the highest percentage of self-made millionaires of any town in the United States. In 1917, while many of the young men of the town served in World War I, Catasauqua became the first community in the United States to raise $1 million in war bonds, earning it the nickname "The Million Dollar Town". In 1928, the Fuller Company purchased the Crane site from Replogle Steel Company, which had taken over the Empire Steel and Iron Company. By the 1950s, the company was the largest manufacturer of equipment for the cement industry in the world.
