Very unique history of a small town that acquired the body of American legend Jim Thorpe and built a tourist destination around his memorial. Very interesting history.

We didn't make a special trip to see this but I'm glad we stopped. Jim Thorpe's story is well told on the displays. His tomb is there plus 2 life size photographable statues. NY Giants fans must-see.
