Former Lutz-Franklin and other Lower Saucon One-Room School Classmates

If you or a friend or family member attended the Lutz-Franklin school, or any Lower Saucon one-room school, please emailalumni day event us with the name of the person and the years attended (if known). We'd like to compile a list and post the names on this page. we'll also include you on our list to invite to our annual alumni get-together.

We'd also like to gather the names of any of the teachers and the years they taught there. It should be fun for former classmates to see names of former friends and teachers and hopefully bring back fond memories.

If the classmate would like to include their contact information such as email address, address, or phone number please include that and it will be listed as well (this is optional).

How to get to Seidersville Hall:
Our monthly meetings
are held the 2nd Wednesday each month at 7:00pm at Seidersville Hall located at the Lower Saucon Township Municipal Complex at 3700 Old Philadelphia Pike, Bethlehem, PA. To get there:


From Route 22 take PA 378 South towards Bethlehem. After crossing the Hill-to-Hill bridge, with its steel superstructure, continue south on Route 378 up the mile-long hill to the top. After crossing the top of the hill and starting down the hill about 1 block, bear to the right onto the two-lane road (Old Philadelphia Pike) and continue past the stop intersection for about two city blocks to Town Hall on the right.

FROM THE SOUTH From Route 309, turn onto Route 378 North and continue northward for about three miles. After you pass under the I-78 overpass, turn left at the traffic signal on to Black River Road. At the stop sign turn right onto Old Philadelphia Pike. Continue northbound for about two city blocks to Town Hall on the left.
FROM I-78 Interstate 78 West to Hellertown/Bethlehem Exit 67. Follow Route 412 South, which becomes Main Street in Hellertown. Turn right at traffic light at Water Street, which becomes Friedensville Road after crossing Saucon Creek. Follow Friedensville Road to Hickory Hill Road. Continue straight ahead to Route 378. Continue through the traffic signal to the stop sign at Old Philadelphia Pike. Turn left and continue downhill on Old Philadelphia Pike for about two city blocks to Town Hall on the right.
