Our guide was fully knowledgeable about the Packer family. We learned how he amassed his fortune and spent his life in Mauch chauch . Truly worth the price to see how an 1800’s empire was built.

Been to Jim Thorpe a few times but never visited the Mansion. Magnificent structure which has been very well preserved. The tour cost $9.00 for seniors. I would not suggest it for children. The tour takes about 45 minutes and you visit all 3 floors....More

The mansion is beautifully preserved and well maintained by volunteers. Staff is well versed with the knowledge of Asa Packer and his family from his humble beginnings to the family's wonderful philanthropy.

Step back in time to the untouched Victorian mansion of Asa Packer, once one of the richest men in the world. You have to take the hour long tour to see the mansion, which costs $10, but you will not be disappointed!

Love the history of this place and how good the people who owned it helped other people with less. They helped the town grow to be better and so happy the history lives on. Roger and Jan newlyweds

Yes, there is a significant incline. Some of it steps, some sidewalk. The mansion sits high on a hill overlooking the town.
