Ghost Walks in Old Mauch Chunk


(This activity is a fundraiser for the Jim Thorpe Rotary and helps support our multiple charitable endeavors in our local community, nationally, and internationally.)

IMPORTANT :The Jim Thorpe Rotary will ONLY cancel Ghost Walks in the event of severe, inclement weather (torrential downpours or snow/ice). In the event of cancelation, we will contact you. We have a NO REFUND POLICY but, if we cancel, your purchased tickets may be used later in the Ghost Walk Season. The number we can accommodate on the Walks is limited and all our profit goes to Charities. Refunding ticket purchases for those who do not show up for the Walks negatively impacts our charitable donations.


 While not scary, the Ghost Walk is not recommended for children under 7 because they get distracted with some of the longer stories.  Attentive children are certainly welcome, however.

In 2021, The Ghost Walks entertained ~ 1,000 men, women and children.  Don't miss your chance in 2022!      

Enjoy intriguing tales of reported ghoulish encounters and stories of historic properties and people along Broadway. The one-mile, round trip, walks start at the Inn at Jim Thorpe, 24 Broadway. Led by a costumed storyteller with lantern, the walks, all outside, last about an hour, unless the spirits have other ideas!

Walks are planned according to the listed schedule but are subject to change if the spirits call for rain.

Although walk-ins are always welcome, space on each walk may be limited, so pre-registration and payment is recommended. Ticket prices are $15 for adults (13 and older) and $5 for children (12 and younger).
