Back in May, Dan and I took a trip to Jim Thorpe, PA, a beautifully restored Victorian-era town in the mountains of southeastern Pennsylvania. Dan had been there a couple of times before with friends, to go kayaking on the river, but this was my first time there. Here are a few pix of the trip; one of these days, I’ll get a bunch of them put into an online photo album, but here are some for now:
Jim Thorpe, PA
This is an overview of the town from the top of a nearby mountain. The mansion in the upper center, with the red roof tiles, is the Asa Packer Mansion, now a museum; to the right of it is his son’s house, the Harry Packer Mansion, which is now a bed and breakfast inn that hosts murder mysteries, and to the right of that, with a cupola on top, is the carriage house, where we stayed.
You gotta read the story of Mary Hannah Packer Cummings (1839-1912), Asa’s daughter. She was a feminist before her time 🙂
The Carriage House.
The Falls (can’t remember the name – Dan?)
