Childhood memories of trips to Mount Gretna’s Jigger Shop are likely shared by more Lebanon residents than just about any other experience. After all, the business has been in operation for nearly 125 years.
LebTown sent local photographer William Trostel to chronicle an afternoon spent at the Gretna staple.
The Jigger Shop and the sights of Mount Gretna aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, but they are seasonal—check them out this summer if you’re looking to relive a classic.
The Jigger Shop is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day in the summer months, but look up individual attractions for their own hours. The Lake & Beach grounds, for instance, are open from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
