The Mauch Chunk Historical Society of Jim Thorpe, PA preserves and interprets our region's history by providing a focal point for culture, entertainment and the arts in our community to enrich the lives of current and future generations of residents and visitors.

In 1954, the towns of Mauch Chunk and East Mauch Chunk united to form the borough of Jim Thorpe — to honor the World's Greatest Athlete.



The 1882 Opera House has been preserved and restored by the membership of the Mauch Chunk Historical Society.

Through your support, the MCHS will continue to improve the Opera House and promote other historical projects.

The Mauch Chunk Opera House offers a wide variety of musical entertainment. See our schedule here.
