History

The village developed around an iron mill (P. Weaver Foundry) that is located near the headwaters of Laurel Run (South Branch of the Saucon Creek). Laurel Run is a regulated trout stream in Pennsylvania. The mill race can still be seen as part of Locust Valley Golf Course.

The Locust Valley name came from the locust trees planted on the mill owner's property. The Locust Valley golf course still contains numerous locust trees.

The village was once home to a post office, store (W. Trumbaur Store), hotel, school, tavern, and church.

The one-room schoolhouse, built in 1880, is still in existence as a residential home at the intersection of Blue Church Rd S and Beverly Hills Rd. This school district was later incorporated into the Southern Lehigh School District.
