The Old Jail Museum in Historic Jim Thorpe PA

In 1877 four men accused of being Molly Maguires were hanged together on gallows inside The Old Jail Museum. In 1878 and 1879 three more accused Molly Maguires were hanged there. The men swore they were innocent. One man, to prove his innocence, placed his hand firmly on the wall of his cell. He proclaimed his handprint would remain forever as a sign of his innocence. The Handprint is Still On The Wall of Cell 17 Today!
Built in 1871, The Old Jail Museum contains 28 cells, the warden's living quarters and 16 eerie dungeon cells. The reconstructed gallows follow original descriptions. The Old Jail Museum was the county jail until January 1995. It is an excellent example of 19th century prison architecture and is listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings.

Weekend Tours only in September and October from Noon to 4:30 p.m.

The Unofficial Start of The Lakefront Home Buying Season!

Well Happy Autumn Everyone! Although it is not officially Fall yet I am eagerly awaiting the change of colors of all the trees here in the Pocono Mountains. Northeast Pa is probably the most majestic of places in the FALL!

As is customary here in the Poconos, the Fall Season ushers in the "Unofficial Lakefront Home Buying Season". I'm not really sure why but my theory is that the present owners of these 'soon to be for sale' lakefront homes want to get them on the market but use them one last summer and after summer they put them up for sale. I went to look at two of them over the weekend just myself.
Any potential buyers looking for a lakefront home will be hustling from now until Thanksgiving to find that Perfect Lakehouse! Here in the Poconos, out of 4,167 Homes currently on the Multiple Listing Service, only 114 ( or roughly 3%) of them are actually deemed lakefront so there is a supply and demand issue here. Out of those 114 some buyers would consider about 20% of those homes to be on a Pond as opposed to a lake. Whatever your preference, God is not making any more waterfront property so let's get out there and find that Perfect Pocono Lakehouse!

From communities as well known as Lake Harmony-Lake Naomi-Locust Lake Village-Arrowhead Lakes- Towamensing Trails-Big Boulder-Indian Mountain Lakes-Pocono Springs Estates-Big Bass Lake-Split Rock-Blue Mountain Lake Estates-Emerald Lakes-Penn Estates to the little less known communities like Indian Lake-Lake in the Clouds-Pocono Summit Lake-Spring Lake Estates-Alpine Lake-and-White Heron there is inventory albeit the slightest of inventory.
For Sellers Looking to get their Lakehouse Sold I say CALL ME NOW!
For Buyers Looking for That Perfect Pocono Lakefront Home
