    Jim Thorpe, PA (Mauch Chunk) and the Molly Maguires...

    My wife and I decided to get away for a few days to one of our favorite destinations - Jim Thorpe, PA (formerly Mauch Chunk). Fine restaurants, wonderful places to stay, hiking & biking, theater, and above all else... History! From early coal mining, Asa Packer, & The Molly Maguires, through its Victorian era rise & fall, to the renaming of the town & the return to a glimpse of its former glory... please enjoy a small snapshot of this wonderful destination in the mountains of eastern PA.
