New museum opens in Lower Macungie

L. MACUNGIE TWP., Pa. - Folks in Lehigh County celebrated the opening of a new museum Sunday.

The Lower Macungie Township Historical Society held the grand opening for its new museum, The Bartholomew Center for the Preservation of Lower Macungie Township History.

The new museum traces local history back to the time of the Lenni Lenape tribe, colonial settlers, a look at the dawn of the industrial age, and up to the present day.

The historical society is inviting community members to be active participants in the new museum.

"We're hoping people will come by and share their stories, sometimes they'll want to share family pictures and we're looking forward to learning much more than we already know," said Ann Bartholomew of the historical society.

The museum will be open every Sunday. It's located in Camp Olympic Park at 3120 South Cedar Crest Boulevard.
