Arts & Museums
The story of Mauch Chunk, what is now Jim Thorpe, is brought to life by videos, images, artifacts and four working models, which include a standard lock on the Lehigh Canal, water filled, working model of Josiah White's Bear Trap Lock, an operable miter lock and drop gate lock on the Lehigh Canal and a 30 foot replica of Mauch Chunk's famous Switchback Gravity Railroad.
Open from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, except on Wednesdays and only on weekends during September and October, the Old Jail Museum is "home of the handprint on the wall."
