the hell he did, but he went to school in the area, and the city is part of his legacy. Not, and not to go to school there. He was never even in the city. The city bought his remains as a tourist attraction due to the steady decline of the entire area after the coal industry hit the skids. The history section of the borough website mentions nothing of Jim Thorpe himself, except for one line where you said that it was named after one of the nations greatest athletes.
