Inscription. The Pennsylvania House and Slate Exchange Hotels provided lodging for railroad passengers and travelers on the Lehigh Canal. Phaon Bittner and Daniel Muse constructed the Pennsylvania House in 1868. After purchasing Muse’s interests, Bittner ran the hotel until 1894 when his son Erwin took over the business. William Kuntz and his sons built, owned and operated the Slate Exchange Hotel. Prior to WWII the hotel was converted into apartments. The building was razed in 1977 to allow for the construction of the Diamond Fire Company Social Hall.
