Part of the Upper Macungie Township, Fogelsville is a village in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania with a population just upwards of 3,000 residents. Long before the cluster of hotels, business parks and distribution centers dotted the perimeter of Fogelsville, the Native Americans of the Lenni Lenape tribe inhabited the territory west of Kuhnsville and North of Trexlertown in what is now part of Upper Macungie Township. By the mid-1700s German immigrants, attracted to the rich soil and copious water sources, established a community based largely on agriculture. The town was officially founded in 1798 by The Honorable John F. Fogel, the son of a farmer who went on to serve as Associate Judge of Lehigh County from 1815 to 1823. Judge Fogel built the first structure in town, a hotel at the corner of Main and Church Streets, today known as Hops Fogelsville Hotel. By 1880 the population was a whopping 383 and the village consisted of two churches, two taverns, three schools, a carriage factory, a limestone quarry and a post office. Fogelsville realized significant growth when Lehigh Portland Cement Company established itself in town. The company was founded in 1897 by several prominent Allentown businessmen, including General Harry C. Trexler, who recognized the abundance of natural resources in the Lehigh Valley. In response to the growing demand for cement, facilities were constructed throughout the United States, including nearby plants in Coplay and Ormrod before the Fogelsville plant was built in 1907. These days Fogelsville remains a thriving suburb of Allentown full of contemporary housing developments, parks and nearby businesses.
