Cementon is a census-designated place located in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, in the United States. The town is in Whitehall Township, 7 miles (11 km) north of Allentown and 1 mile (1.6 km) east of Egypt. Cementon is situated along the Lehigh River, across from the borough of Northampton. Cementon is located on Pennsylvania Route 329, east of its intersection with Pennsylvania Route 145 at Eagle Point, Pennsylvania.
Cementon was originally known as Siegfried's Ferry, as it is located directly across the Lehigh River from Siegfried (one of the three villages that would merge to become Northampton in 1902). In 1828, a bridge was built across the river, and the town became known as Siegfried's Bridge. After a large Whitehall Portland Cement Works' quarry and mill were established in 1900/1901, the town was renamed Cementon.
