History

Laurys Station was initially known as "Slate Dam," after the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company built a large dam here in 1830. In 1832, David Laury established a hotel here, which would become a popular resort during the summer months. Laury would later become the settlement's postmaster (1853) and station agent, when the Lehigh Valley Railroad opened a station here in 1855.[1] The Lehigh Valley Railroad's four track mainline was located directly in the middle of the town, which was situated around present-day Mauser Street. Laurys Station, at one point in time, had its own amusement park down by the river.
