“jim thorpe region”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

We took a train ride through the country and learned a lot about the history of this area. We also enjoyed the tour of the asa packard mansion. Lots of lovely shops in the town.

“Jim Thorpe legend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

The park where Jim Thorpe is buried it outside of the main town. Their are statues of him, as well as the granite crypt where he is buried. Turns out his widow advertised that any town that would change their name to Jim Thorpe, could have his remains. (Trivia)

Impressive Monument to one of the greatest athletes of all time. Jim Thorpe did unbelievable feats and his athleticism came naturally.

“A Toucing Tribute”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

The memorial has Jim Thorpe's actual grave located at the site. There are a couple of sculptures and a number of pictographs describing his life and achievements. The one thing that bothered us was that they never explained why he was buried here in Mauch Chunk and the town was renamed after him. Why did that happen? What relation did he have with the town that they did that?
