Our Location

Description

Country : Hokendauqua, Whitehall, PA, USA

This station is located in the Hokendauqua (a.k.a. Hokey [ponounced "hockey" /ˈhɑːki/]) portion of Whitehall Township. Hokey was a town built on iron: in 1855, the Thomas Iron Company built two iron furnaces on what had been the Butz farm along the western bank of the Lehigh River in Whitehall Township. Soon after, the village that would become Hokey was formed by the company (to prevent the creation of drinking saloons near the homes of the foundry workers). In 1927, after 71 years of operation, the foundery closed for the last time. Bethlehem Steel purchased the property then began scrapping the facility in 1936, leaving just the shells of a few buildings on the site.


Post war suburban growth turned the village into a bedroom community. In 2010, the village was the home of 3,378 people and 1,300 homes. The area is a United States Census Census Designated Area.
