This week’s Tour Through Time takes a look at several images of the Boiling Springs Zoo Park, which was operated for 16 years by Jack and Viola Kiracofe.

It was located in the South Mountain near Boiling Springs. The Historical Society said it closed in 1980. It hosted up to 250 animals.

Tour Through Time is published Saturdays in The Sentinel as a joint project with the Cumberland County Historical Society. Sentinel photographer Michael Bupp will work with staff at the Historical Society each week to offer a look at Carlisle and the surrounding area through the years.

Please contact the Cumberland County Historical Society at 717-249-7610 with any information pertaining to these images. Please send future ideas or suggestions to
