The Lehigh County

Lehigh County is a district in the State of Pennsylvania. Its 260.000 inhabitants live within an area of 900 (347 sq.mi).

Lehigh County's economic structure and its whole character resembles the Stadtverband Saarbrücken; agricul-ture plays an important role along with its basic and pro-cessing industries.

Large parts of the population of Lehigh County are of German descent. This explains the strong emotional ties with our country. Many personal contacts between schools and institutions have been established with the people of the Saarland.
