Bethlehem Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Pennsylvania
The historical city of Bethlehem is a unique combination of old and new. Known for its rich colonial and industrial history, "Christmas City USA" is experiencing an unparalleled economic and cultural revival that continues to bring a steady flow of jobs and money into the area. From its humble beginnings as a Moravian settlement to the arrival of European immigrants desirous of work at Bethlehem Steel Corporation to the advent of the Industrial Revolution, Bethlehem offers a vibrant quality of life. Three centuries of time are on display between Broad Street and Church Street in Historic Bethlehem. The original facades of colonial, Victorian and hand-hewn log buildings stand in stark contrast with modern buildings built from factory-made steel, glass and brick. Safe, tree-lined neighborhoods -- such as the ethnically diverse Southside and well-preserved Historic District -- offer residents a variety of affordable housing in family friendly areas. The Bethlehem Area School District includes two high schools, four middle schools and 16 elementary schools and serves approximately 14,000 students. Institutions of high learning include Lehigh University, Moravian College and Northampton Community College.
