-Visit one of our many museums (Asa Packer, Mauch Chunk Museum, Kemmerer Carriage House) to learn more about the sites you will see in town
This is a great stop for local history. Packed with interesting stuff, including an awesome diorama of the town & mountains. Right on our block across Broadway.
This museum tells the story of Mauch Chunk, the coal-mining town that preceded Jim Thorpe. The main exhibit focuses on the Lenape Indians, the discovery of coal in the Jim Thrope area, the industrialization of Mauch Chunk, the Switchback Gravity Railroad, and Mauch Chunk's transformation into modern-day Jim Thorpe.
