Welcome to Jim Thorpe, PA

Our beautiful town of Jim Thorpe, PA is nestled between the mountains & Lehigh River.


You will think you stepped back in time as you stroll our quaint streets lined with Victorian Architecture.  Our beautifully restored buildings are filled with about 40 specialized shops, anitque stores, & delicious eateries... all within walking distance... all small family owned businesses!

Jim Thorpe, PA (formally named Mauch Chunk) is filled with coal mining and rail-road history.  Mauch Chunk, PA was the place that fueled the Industrial Revolution!  And, Mauch Chunk was the location of the first roller coaster in the United States!

We are located 5 walkable blocks from the Train Station (located off Rt. 209)


* Be sure to stop in our other family business - four blocks from the Jail:

The Treasure Shop ~ 44 Broadway  -

Our store is filled with unique finds made in Ireland and the USA!


Where are we?

We're located in historic downtown Jim Thorpe, PA.

You may either park at a meter or park in the County Lot & walk to to the jail.  

We are 5 blocks from the Train Station & Court House (with the clock).  

There is a County Parking Lot behind the train station (off Rt 209)  5 walkable blocks away.

Note: If you approach the County Parking lot from Rt 903, on weekends you will not be able to turn left into the lot.  Make the first right then turn left at the light to get to the lot.  


We do have a SMALL parking lot reserved for Handicapped / Disabled plates or tag holders. 

Our small lot is located up the driveway of the jail. Do NOT park in our neighbor's lower lot or you will be ticketed & towed!

Our lot will not accommodate extra large vehicles, campers, extended pick-ups, or vehicles with trailers / large bike racks.

Sorry, no parking on the street as this is by permit only & you will get a $50 ticket.  The lot on the street level is NOT for jail use. It is home-owner parking only & you will be towed if you park there. If you do not have a handicapped tag, but cannot walk to the jail due to a physical condition, please park in our lot & advise staff as soon as you arrive.  Please move your vehicle out of our lot immediately after your tour.  (Violators. will be towed at vehicle owner's expense)
