TOUR THE PACKER MANSIONS!
The Asa Packer Mansion ~
The Mansion was the home of philanthropist, railroad magnate, and founder of Lehigh University, Asa Packer. Built in 1861 by Philadelphia architect, Samuel Sloan, the home was constructed over a span of two years and cost a total of $14,000. Topped by a red-ribbed tin roof and a central cupola, or belvedere, the home was built over a cast iron frame and consists of 3 stories, 18 rooms and approximately 11,000 square feet of living space. It is now open for guided tours from 11-4 every day. www.asapackermansion.com
The Harry Packer Mansion ~
The Inn is located in the little Victorian village of Jim Thorpe, PA. Jim Thorpe is a scenic paradise nestled between three mountains in northeastern Pennsylvania. Perched atop Packer Hill, just steps from historic downtown, the Harry Packer Mansion sits like a sentinel overlooking the village. The mansion's impressive facade could have been taken from a Gothic novel, so much so that the building's design caught the eye of Disney Imagineers and it became the inspiration for Walt Disney World's "Haunted Mansion"! The mansion features murder mystery weekends, luxurious lodging and Libations Lounge. www.murdermansion.com
Light refreshments, cash bar.
