We ventured out to tour Jim Thorpe and weren't overly thrilled with it and its haunted vibe. Touring this church along with the Packer mansion was the highlight. Everything is still as it was in the 1800's. It's very musty but beautiful. The tour guide...More

This church was a beauty on Race Street. It seemed very quaint. Did not realize there was a fee to tour or donation until we were told by the lady after helping her with the stuck doors.

The young tour guide was able to tell quite a bit about the history of the church and took us through several sections. The main sanctuary was breathtaking. No actual charge - just a donation requested. Photos were allowed!

This is a must see tour of a true historic gem. Wonderful Tiffany stained glass windows. Make sure to see this while still available to see.

Mary Packer (of the Asa Packer family) financially supported this church and it has some Tiffany windows that are worth seeing. The church has an old elevator and is very worth your time to see.
