Things To Do


Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania is a premiere destination for fans of nature, architecture, art, eclectic entertainment, history, good food, and even the supernatural. In fact, during Victorian times, it was second only to Niagara Falls as the most popular tourist destination in the United States. It was recently voted one of the ten coolest and one of the ten prettiest towns in the USA.

The town was founded by Lehigh Coal & Navigation Company (LC&N) as Mauch Chunk, which is Lenni Lenape for “Sleeping Bear”. Its natural resources of coal, strategic location, and proximity to the Lehigh Canal saw the town thrive as a transshipment center for coal. The Industrial Revolution put Mauch Chunk on the map.

The Hooven Building


Our store is located inside of the Hooven Building. During the late 1800's, our facility was used to measure grains, spices, coffee beans, and the like. The original scale is built into the floor behind our bar. We are right in the town square, with a porch that's perfect for enjoying whatever music is coming from the gazebo. Our favorite is when the Native American drum circle plays during the Jim Thorpe Birthday Celebration.

Sometimes people leave little figures there for us, like Barbie or Papa Smurf.
