Built in 1858, this historic mansion anchored the Fountain Hill neighborhood, a wealthy enclave of Bethlehem and home to the area’s industrialists and railroad pioneers.
Building a Legacy
Robert Heysham Sayre specifically chose the location of his Gothic Revival style home to be near his work. Despite little formal education, he learned his trade through apprenticeship and rose through the ranks to become chief engineer of the Lehigh Valley Railroad. He also founded and maintained partnership in Bethlehem Iron Works, which would later become the sprawling Bethlehem Steel Company. He sponsored the construction of the Episcopalian Cathedral Church of the Nativity. In partnership with noted industrialist Asa Packer, Robert Sayre championed the creation and development of Lehigh University.
