The tours will be held on October 13, 20 and 27 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., and detail the disturbing feelings, strange voices and shadowy images reported in the building.

Town History Jim Thorpe, founded as Mauch Chunk, has a colorful history that dates back to the early 1800s. The town’s proximity to rich coal stores in neighboring mountains afforded it great wealth and importance. During its “golden era” at the turn of the 20th century, Mauch Chunk was known as the wealthiest town, per capita, in all of America. Nearly 200 years later, much of the area’s Victorian splendor remains intact. Historic dwellings such as the Asa Packer Mansion Museum preserve details of the town’s vibrant past. Information on the Asa Packer Mansion Museum can be obtained at www.asapackermasion.com or by calling (570) 325-3229.

Getting There Whether for shopping, dining, entertainment or adventure, an autumn trip to Jim Thorpe is an ideal way to spend a day. The historic town is short drive away from New York City, and just an hour and fifteen minutes from Philadelphia. Visit www.jimthorpe.org to plan your retreat, or call (570) 325-5810.
