A devout Christian, he believes that sinful pastimes like salons and brothels are taking the country in the wrong direction, and Thompson fears things could go completely off track. Worries about America’s moral decay plunged the successful businessman into a spiritual crisis.
Now in his 30s, he turned the railroad tracks used to transport coal into a tourist attraction. He sold his sock factory and decided to devote himself to this kind of wholesome entertainment to save the fallen America.
