The Lehigh Slate Company Mantel Factory, constructed by the Lehigh Slate Company circa 1859 in Slatington, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, was an industrial building erected for the manufacturing of various slate products, such as mantels, vaults, billiard table tops, counter-tops, flagging, blackboards, electrical insulators, etc. This mantel factory is the only surviving slate manufacturing structure from the formative years of the slate industry in the Slate Belt region of Upper Lehigh and Upper Northampton counties. The building is currently owned by the Mantz family.
