Weisenburg Township was formed out of the "Backparts of Macunjy" and part of the Allemangel, and was erected as a township in 1753. Weisenburg was named for the city Weissenburg, a fortress and town in Alsace, from the vicinity in which the majority of the townspeople had come. The first settlements took place in 1734, on and around the highlands in the vicinity of Ziegel Church. (Extracted from "Histories of the Counties of Lehigh and Carbon, In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania," by Alfred Mathews, published in 1884.)
