Friends of Beltzville: Legacy of Harry Trexler
February 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Friends invite you to a showing of WLVT PBS39’s Documentary, “The Legacy of Harry C. Trexler,” with the kick off of the 2017 Beltzville on the Move Hiking Series to follow.
During his lifetime, Harry C. Trexler contributed a great deal to the growth and quality of life in the City of Allentown and the surrounding County of Lehigh. Trexler devoted much of his life to a variety of agricultural pursuits including a trout hatchery, poultry farms, potato and grain farms, orchards, alfalfa dehydrating plants, and a sheep ranch. From more than 1,100 acres, Trexler established a game preserve for buffalo, elk and deer. The Trexler Nature Preserve, previously known as the Trexler-Lehigh County Game Preserve, was conveyed to the County after the General’s death.
