About This Walk

We will meet at the Jim Thorpe train station in front of the Visitor Center. From there we will walk up Broadway to the Carbon County Jail where a few of the Molly McGuires were hanged. Hand-outs with a bit of history will be included. A tour of the jail will be part of the walk. This walk will be cancelled ONLY in the event of torrential downpours. . Our reservations are already made for 11:30am at the Stone Row Pub and eatery. Please let me know as far in advance as possible if you have food allergies. You can email me at edbubnisphotography@gmail.com.

This walk is as much about having a good time and taking photos as it is about the camaraderie photographers feel when participating in events like these. Since this will be my first walk as a leader, I will try my best to make it as fun as possible.

Also please note: At the time of the walk, the Fall Festival will be underway in Jim Thorpe, so there should be no shortage of photo opportunities. And with that said, I will have to limit this walk to 20 participants.

Additional walk informationAugust 7th, 2018

Here is the latest update – no permit is required for our walk. The walk to the Carbon County prison is a moderate uphill climb. There are plenty of photo ops during the walk. I was asked that we respect the residents of Jim Thorpe by not taking photos of them unless they approach us. Once we make it to the prison – it’s all downhill from there lol. Our walk is ready to go – we are just waiting on October. A side note – I will be adding a photo of myself soon so everyone knows who to look for.

  • Khürt Williams Interesting that you were told NOT to take photos of people. Not only does the law not require ANY permission but lots of photogs do street photography in Jim Thorpe (my being one of them) and I've never had anyone complain and it frankly, it seems ridiculous to request this for a Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk. If there are restrictions to be doing street photography let me know. I will find another walk.

    • Ed Bubnis Sr Khurt, I was not TOLD, I was asked not to take photos of the residents in their homes. We are allowed to photograph people in the street. My apologies, I should have been more clear on that.
