Mauch Chunk, also Upper Chunk and East Chunk : (pronounced Mock-Chunk) Sometimes called just plain "Chunk". Not a patch; the former name of the town now called "Jim Thorpe". In the mid-1950's, the town was looking to attract industry. It struck a deal with the descendants of Jim Thorpe (the athlete) to have Mr. Thorpe buried in Mauch Chunk. The town agreed to erect a memorial to Jim Thorpe and to change their name from Mauch Chunk. Jim Thorpe did spend part of his youth in Pennsylvania. He played football at Carlisle Indian University.
