Eagles Mere Toboggan Slide

Capt. E.S. Chase stood at the edge of the lake one January day watching his grandchildren. They asked him why he couldn’t build a “real good” toboggan slide down the slope of Lake Avenue. It was a logical idea. Capt. Chase had a “finger in every pie” in the development of Eagles Mere. He had moved here from Williamsport in 1886 and continually initiated projects such as laying out the street plans of the village, planning and cutting the Arrow Paths and our well known Laurel Path around the lake. One of his monumental contributions was sounding out and making a map of the Eagles Mere Lake depths theretofore unknown.

He began work on a design and method for building a toboggan slide that would be safe, sturdy and continued pleasure for Eagles Mere residents.

The slide today is executed from these original plans using Capt. Chase’s planner and his method of grooving the ice.

Information:

  • The Eagles Mere Toboggan Slide is located on Route #42 at the top of the hill in the historic village of Eagles Mere
  • To find out if the slide is in operation, please call the slide information hotline 570-525-3244

Eagles Mere Air Museum

The Eagles Mere Air Museum is devoted to showcasing airplanes, aircraft engines, and related artifacts of the immediate post WW1 period through the late 1930’s. This “Golden Age” of flying and aircraft innovation sparked much social change.

The Museum puts the developments of the period in context through displays of rare craft engines (beginning with the 1st commercially produced engine in 1909), early photos, period toys, and the histories of the pilots that flew the many airplanes exhibited.

If you happen to be visiting on a day when the airplanes are being flown you will likely get to see them hand propped, witness the visceral impact of smoke and noise (nothing like an eight liter V-8 at 1400 RPM), and see them airborne. The 1920’s are still alive in the “Town That Time Forgot”.
