The Jim Thorpe Memorial is a good reminder of what he stood for in his town. They could have used some more information about Jim Thorpe around the memorial for visitors. Also, learn a little about Jim Thorpe on the train tour.

This is a small memorial site just off the road north of the town of Jim Thorpe, PA. It's peaceful and inspirational. A fitting memorial to the great athlete. Definitely worth taking a few minutes to view!

Interesting memorial with several nice bronze statues and sarcophagus. He was a Native American sports hero and football player.

Stolen remains of his body from Oklahoma, sold by his widow to make some money, to a new municipality that was created in Pennsylvania, looking for a tourist attraction. Pretty cool story.....and there is more.....

Stop by if your in this area. Very nice memorial, well kept and professionally designed. The entire life story of Mr. Thorpe is laid out for your viewing. Very interesting and would be educational for young people.

Didn't have a lot of time but we did have an opportunity to stop at the memorial they have dedicated to Jim Thorpe. Plan ahead if going into town, a lot of the shops were closed when we visited.

Nice statue - not much to say about it. Learned more online than the information there. Seems like it could be quite the story but a missed opportunity

I drove by the memorial. It had two large statues. Very impressive. The major draw for me, was the city of Jim Thorpe, and the quaintness of the city, with the windy streets, going up a hill, and the wonderful architecture. It is clearly very...More
