Gargoyles! - Upper Mauch Chunk Cemetery Memorial Chapel of the Resurrection
This internment chapel was built by Asa Packer's last surviving child, Mary Packer Cummings. It is located in the "Hills" section of Jim Thorpe, previously Upper Mauch Chunk Cemetery. Jack Sterling, with the help of Keith Bellhorn, put together a webpage devoted to it if you wish for more information. This chapel has an Otis elevator for lowering caskets into the crypt below.
