For more on the origins of the real estate trading game click on Elizabeth "Lizzy" Magie Phillips. The museum is located in Scranton part of the large tourist area known as The Poconos. Houdini had the two longest engagements of his career in this area of NE Pennsylvania. Two full seasons with The Welsh Brothers Circus, 1895 and 1898. This would be just before his metoric rise to fame, having developed about 80% of the material that would make him an international star.

Before that was on the upper East side of Manhattan for 15 years.
