See my previous post for information on how the town came to be known as Jim Thorpe.
|The Main Street of Jim Thorpe.|
|The buildings were all very well cared for and in use. This was no ghost town, for sure.|
|Jim Thorpe Courthouse|
|Looking back toward the courthouse.|
We enjoyed walking the two blocks I could manage.
|Another book store! Hurray!|
|The structures are very small-town America in style.|
|Jim Thorpe has been called the "Switzerland of America."|
|This was the town library. The structure was built in 1889.|
|I wanted to go in but could not find a handicapped access.|
|Anthracite coal is what made this little community.|
