Historic Downtown Walking Tour

The most understandable and all-encompassing historic tour of downtown Jim Thorpe! Learn the amazing history of this area in a chronological order, as we walk around the beautiful downtown. Hear unique facts and stories about Mauch Chunk/Jim Thorpe, some of which are only told by the JTX, as you enjoy the historic downtown’s amazing architecture and European feel. We’ll visit Broadway and West Broadway, plus Race Street and a couple lesser-known spots in town. Much of what you hear will surprise you, as Jim Thorpe has a very checkered past. If you really want to understand why this place is the way it is, THIS is the first step....
** Note that although this tour is available daily, there is one tour given per day - it may not be this one: the first reservation is what determines the day’s tour. Call to find out what tour is going on a specific day, or if you’re planning ahead, reserve the trip you want to take!
OCTOBER UPDATE - due to the enormous volume of people in town on weekends in October, it is impossible to give Walking Tours... please schedule them during the weekdays.  Thanks!
