About Stockertown, Pennsylvania
The Borough of Stockertown was named after Andreas and Jonas Stocker, who settled on these lands in the late 1700s. In late 1900, a group of Stockertown citizens petitioned Northampton County Court to grant the community the status of a Borough. That petition was granted and, early in 1901, the Borough government was organized. The Borough is situated along the Bushkill and Little Bushkill Creeks.
The Borough contains large industries, such as, Hercules Cement, Polymer Products, Praxair and 84 Lumber Company. Two large industrial parks surround the Borough with Main Street being the only access for all the truck traffic. The Borough is located within a 2 1/2-mile radius and provides services for a population of 687 residents. Stockertown is at the hub of five surrounding second-class townships with large housing developments on the horizon every year. A volunteer fire company and a police department serve our residents. Both emergency services have been successful in acquiring grants to improve the equipment that they operate.
