Starting with the timbering industry and moving forward with the development of the railroad and transportation of coal; the population of the town grew dramatically. Other industries were started that employed vast numbers of the population of the town and surrounding communities and even one classified as the largest in the world.
The town had influences that were noteworthy in our region and the country; individuals such as Asa Packer, Charles Schwab, James Audubon, and has touched the lives of Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt and Alice Roosevelt.
Over the years; the development of the Weatherly School District, Weatherly Foundry and Castings, Weatherwood and Heritage Hill; facilities for the care of the aged, have made an important contribution to the towns development Eurana Park and the Schwab School as well as the Lehigh Valley Railroad Shops are legacies that will continue to remind us of those that came before us; and what they did to develop this town.
