The First Limited Edition Panoramic Print
By Emerson L. Freese Jr.
First in a series of Limited Edition Panoramic Prints. Standing like a sentinel over historic downtown Jim Thorpe is the landmark clock tower of the county courthouse. This area, once known as Market Square, extends up Broadway to the Dimmick Memorial Library. Downtown has been home to amazing architecture and thriving business for over 150 years.
Formerly named Mauch Chunk, the town started as a transportation hub for anthracite coal: first based on canals, then on railroads. Once one of the richest places in America, it is the Carbon County seat and has had a storied past that includes miners and millionaires, hangings and high society, depression and renaissance. Today the town boasts small businesses owned by people that love living here, and is visited by many thousands who enjoy experiencing the history and adventure.
