  • The information was so interesting. Also, my husband's great great uncle Charles Sharp was one of the last men hung as a Molly Maguire Jan. 1879.
  • Quick, Fun little tour done by locals, good historical site. Recommend you also visit the Anthracite Mine after to see what conditions the miners endured.
  • If you enjoy history, go here... The whole town if full of rich history, but the jail holds its own secrets, 100% worth the visit
  • Beautiful and interesting, wish I could have seen the inside but I want on an off day.
  • Great fun. Wish you guys would open before memorial day. Website said Spring.
