WE HAVE CLOSED OUR DOORS FOR THE FINAL TIME...
What a long road it's been and we loved every minute of it, the smiles, the laughter, and watching families come back year after year... Thanks for the memories!
Old Mauch Chunk Model Train Display to close in January
After 26 years as one of Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania’s premier family attractions, Old Mauch Chunk Model Train Display will close our doors to the public at the end of the business day on Sunday, January 15, 2012.
We have given this decision a tremendous amount of prayerful consideration. Everything has a beginning and an end. This is simply the time to close our doors at the Hooven Mercantile Company Building in Jim Thorpe.
Since opening our doors to the public on Thursday, August 22, 1985, we have enjoyed sharing this amazing family-friendly attraction with our guests. We now welcome guests who tell us that they brought their children to experience Old Mauch Chunk Model Train Display years ago. Now, they bring their grandchildren.
Goodbyes are often difficult. So, this is not “goodbye.” It’s simply “Until we meet again.”
Thanks for the memories! - The Heery Family
