Welcome To Macungie Borough

Macungie is a Lenape Indian phrase signifying "The feeding place of the Bears" or, as it was translated by the early Pennsylvania German immigrants, "Baere Schwamm" (fertile meadow of the bears). The Macungie region was first settled by Pennsylvania German immigrants around the year 1735. The village of Millerstown, now the Borough of Macungie, was established in 1776 by Peter Miller of Upper Hanover Township, Montgomery County, when he purchased 150 acres of land along a King's Highway in what was then a portion of Northampton County.

On November 15, 1857, the village of Millerstown was incorporated as a borough. In 1875, the borough was renamed Macungie. Macungie (pronounced ma-CUN-gee) is the second oldest borough in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. The Borough has a total area of 1.0 square mile.
