Overview

The Douglas Mansion has been an eye-catching landmark in Jerome since 1916, when James S. Douglas built it on the hill just above his Little Daisy Mine. This former home is now a museum devoted to the history of the Jerome area and the Douglas family. The museum features photographs, artifacts and minerals in addition to a video presentation and a 3-D model of the town with its underground mines. There are more displays outside along with a picnic area offering a beautiful panoramic view of the Verde Valley.

The museum was filled with pictures from the early 1900's that were interesting. The short film also was interesting. I had hoped that the home was still furnished as it was during that time period, but there was nothing like that. So, it was just...More

Jerome’s a great example of rebirth after demise. The museum explains the past and is a way to understand the rebirth of what easily could have become another forgotten place. After visiting the museum walk the streets of Jerome. Look. See. Visualize. Contemplate.
