History

 

 

 

 


Coplay Creek.

Coplay was part of the 400 acres (1.6 km2) of land John Jacob Schreiber bought from the William Penn heirs in 1740. For a long time it was known as Schreibers. Later it was known as the Lehigh Valley, because of the Lehigh Valley Iron Furnaces that were located here. Lehigh Valley was then changed to Coplay. This name came from "Kolapechka". The son of the Indian chief, Paxanosa, who lived at the head of the creek near Schnecksville. The Borough of Coplay seceded from Whitehall Township in 1869 and was incorporated as a borough on April 7, 1869.

Gradually Coplay changed from a farming area into an Industrial Community. The Thomas Iron Company started the change. They brought in workers and built homes for them. When the Iron Company was liquidated, other industries gradually came to Coplay; the Cement Mill, the Silk Mill, the Cigar Factory and Knitting Mill.

Coplay became a "melting pot" of many nationalities. The Pennsylvania Dutch and Germans, who were the agricultural element. Due to growth of the Iron Industry, immigrants from Ireland came. Then, in the early 1900s, the Cement Mills attracted immigrants from Austria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and the Ukraine.

On April 7, 1969, the borough celebrated its centennial anniversary. A celebration was held from June 15-21 in the town.

The Coplay Cement Company Kilns was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Education

 

 

 


The Borough of Coplay is served by the Whitehall-Coplay School District.

High School students who live in Coplay attend Whitehall High School, but there was at one time a Coplay High School. A building, which is now the Coplay Borough Hall and Police headquarters, was once the Washington School. Then in 1928, after expansions were made, the building at the corner of fourth and center streets became the Coplay High School. The last graduating class was in 1963, then Coplay School District joined the Whitehall School District to make the Whitehall-Coplay School District.

Christ the King school used to be located in Coplay, on the St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church grounds, until it merged with Our Lady of Hungary in Northampton. They merged before the 2011-2012 school year. The school serves for grades Pre-K to 8. The new school is named Good Shepherd Catholic School and is located in the old OLH school building in Northampton.
