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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 informationOctober 5th, 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 wearing a “Leader” Tee Shirt and we will meet at the train station.
