  • Love this place! We go every year, sometimes more. The owners let us go around alone to take pictures. The basement is super creepy. We have ghost pictures in their book. Take the tour and see a creepy old jail!
  • Hoped to get a tour but couldn't because of time my train was leaving. If you want to see it do it 1st. I had an hour wait. If I'm ever there again I'd definitely go back and hopefully see everything
  • We went on train ride dropped off in Jim Thorpe for couple hours .Very nice
  • Great tour, interesting history, very reasonably priced. A must see while in Jim Thorpe.
  • This was interesting. The hand thing is a little forced. Just because someone tells you something doesn't mean it's true. Also, they don't really give you too much information- and then ask you whether they did it! I don't know, you didn't explain both sides. Ugh. A little bit of a tourist trap, but still interesting.
