The Biery Herald

HCPA publishes a quarterly newsletter, which is mailed to members. In addition to events and organization news, each newsletter features 1-2 history articles. The key below provides topics covered since 2010. 

If you are missing the Then and Now photos from our previous site, go to The History of Catasauqua/ Walking Tour pages on this site.  Organized by street, the tours provide both then-and-now pictures where available, along with a history of the buildings and their occupants over the years.
