Take in the architecture and splendor of days gone by this Sunday when the Mauch Chunk Museum and Cultural Center is excited to present its Victorian Home and Garden Tour from Noon to 5 p.m.

The self-guided tour of 20 Victorian homes and gardens will offer goers a rare glimpse inside Jim Thorpe’s 19th century homes including the magnificently restored Dimmick House, the Convent home on West Broadway, the Stone Row home at Three Mountains Gallery on historic Race Street, as well as magical secret gardens such as the Friends of the Library hidden pollinator garden on Broadway.  Several private homes have never been open to the public in the past.

The Mauch Chunk Museum and Cultural Center at 41 West Broadway in Jim Thorpe is sponsoring the fall tour to help further its mission of preserving and presenting historical artifacts, personal treasures and experiences of those who lived and worked in the anthracite coal region from the early 1800s to the present time.

The Museum is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Memorial Day through October 31; weekends November and December; by appointment January through May.

Same day tickets may be purchased at the Mauch Chunk Museum and Cultural Center, 41 West Broadway, Josiah White Plaza at the Train Station in Jim Thorpe, and Friends of the Library 58 Broadway. $20 adults; $10 children. Rain or Shine.
