Went inside to listen to a Ghost Talk presented by the Rotary Club. Fun way to spend the afternoon, in the summer they take you on a Ghost Walk of the town.

If you ever visit Jim Thorpe, PA (formerly Mauch Chunk), be sure to put a visit to the Harry Packer Mansion at the top of your list. The stately home is set high atop a hill that once was the premier location for the wealthy families in that area. It is a bit of a hike, but well-worth the effort.... More

The Harry Packer Mansion is the lighter colored one. It is open strictly for tours. It is a real neat tour. The place and its history are very interesting. We had a great tour.

I love big old historical homes and was very excited to visit the Harry Packer Mansion in October. Being a Disney fan and learning that this house was the inspiration for the Haunted mansion piqued my interest even more. My husband and I arrived and we were not totally sure how to enter.

We came in out of the wet and cold to this warm and friendly home. We enjoyed drinks in the beautiful sitting room and a good conversation with the owner. I recommend it as a very civilized place for a glass of wine. If it weren't so cold out, the front porch looked great, too.
