The Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company (LCNC) was formed in 1820 by a merger of the Lehigh Coal Company and the Lehigh Navigation Company. Both had been founded in 1818 by Josiah White, Erskine Hazard, and George F. Hauto. Operations of the company included navigation improvememnts on the Lehigh River and railway and canal construction, as well as exploitation of the Lehigh anthracite fields. The Lehigh Navigation Coal Company was formed in 1930, essentially as a holding company for the LCNC and other companies. The company went out of business in 1965.
Summary:
Records of The Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company, the Lehigh Coal Navigation Company, the Alliance Coal Mining Company, and other subsidiary companies relate mostly to anthracite mining in the Mauch Chunk and Summit Hill, Pennsylvania area and, to a lesser extent, the railroad, canal, and river navigation work of the companies.
