This attraction is a "must-see" when visiting Jim Thorpe. The price of the ticket alone cannot be beat! The structure is amazing and innovative for its time. Captures the beauty and essence of Jim Thorpe.

The Asa Packer Mansion is definitely a must see when visiting the beautiful quaint town of Jim Thorpe. It is immaculately preserved and brings you back to the millionaires yesteryear with all their authentic furnishings. The view from their front porch is stunning but the real treasure is touring the home and picturing their exciting lives back then in that... More

Check before planning a trip. Seems they are closed in winter until April 2017. TripAdvisor and Jimthorpe.org town research site doesn't know this. The town is closed in winter except for shops, restaurants and wine tastings

Some of the features of the building were definitlely ahead of their time. Parking is a challenge, you have... More

I definitely recommend stepping back in time and witnessing what Jim Thorpe was when Asa Packer brought money and jobs to the area. He was a true philanthropist. This is a rags to riches story that is not to be missed.

Area historical facts mixed with a family history of how a common man with common sense and appropriate skills made millions as the age of coal and then-new railroads evolved in that area of Pennsylvania
