Decoding the Myths of Asa Packer, 1805?-1879

Christmas Hall

Now known as Christmas-Saucon, Christmas Hall was originally a Moravian Church located on the property donated by Packer.  The decision to buy it and turn it into an academic building was one of the first made by the Board of Trustees, making it the oldest building standing on Lehigh's campus.  The board named it Christmas Hall to reflect the building's history and relation to the Moravians.  While Packer Hall was being built, Christmas Hall was the sole building available for all university functions.
