I believe that was more of the brown fields recession times, a bit before Obama. I think it may have been, no I`m not going to say, I might get in trouble.

These pictures remind me of a time I got off the interstate and headed cross rural West VA. It seemed like on every curve there was an abandoned triple or breaker. Of course that was bit coal but still it spoke of a time gone by. It was almost as if you took the time you could hear the conversations and stories of the miners and their towns. Much is to be learned if we take the time. Stay warm, Lisa

At one time rt 611 was a main stagecoach route I understand, thus the Tannersville Inn (180 yrs old) http://www.tannersvilleinn.com/
as well as the ole Swiftwater Inn ( aka the Swifty) since 1778,

, were popular places for a nite's rest....

My dad has a place in Tobyhanna, we go there often for a couple years now. I remember seeing the swiftwater inn but it was closed. Now it is gone. I will be in Tobyhanna in Feb 19th and 20th for a long weekend. I may have to stop by the Tannersville inn. (My wife and kids are into that ghost stuff so I should be able to talk them into it)

Candle shop is one our 'must stop' places each trip. We also must go to Callie's candies and pretzels. Don't leave out the cheap movie in Mount Pocono! I'm not sure of the town they are in, I just know how to get to them(haha). We stay in Pocono Country Place...

We go to the trading post too...they won't sell the old cash register to me!...I ask everytime I'm there. We were there years ago and the old lady there gave my daughter a stuffed bear that is her favorite toy..goes everywhere with her still. we need more things to see and do while we are there...cheap.
