History

The source of the Lehigh name was not well documented. One of the rumors is the city being slightly higher altitude which was "lay high" above the prairie, the other rumor that it was named by representatives of Lehigh County, Pennsylvania who came to Kansas and considered settling the area in the 1870's or 1880's.[3]

North of Lehigh is the junction of the old Santa Fe Trail and Chisolm Trail.
