In case you do not subscribe to the state tourism magazine, PA Pursuits, you may want to give them a call and order a copy.
For the past three years, the Pennsylvania Tourism Office has been publishing a quarterly magazine as a seasonal supplement to the state's travel guide. The Schuylkill County Visitors Bureau normally advertises in the Summer issue, but this coming year, you will also see our advertisement in the Spring issue as well.
But if you check out http://www.visitpa.com/ right now, you can order yourself a copy of the Winter Pursuits. Inside, you will find a two page driving tour through the communities of Upper Schuylkill County.
A two page spread features our local heritage sites such as the Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine, the Hibernian House and the Ashland Mothers Memorial. Coal mining history, the Molly Maguires and even "screamers" from Tony's Lunch in Girardville are the topic of discussion in PA Pursuits popular, "PA Roadtrip" special section.
To get yourself a copy of the Winter Pursuits Magazine, stop in at the Visitors Center in downtown Pottsville and pick one up, or you can call 1-800-Visit-PA to begin your subscription.
