This is the large home built in the 1920s by the owner of the nearby mine when it was in operation. There are interesting artifacts on display and a video showing what the area was like in those days.

Jerome, AZ is touted as a ghost town, but it’s full of tourists. A stop at the Historic Park is interesting because of the museum which is a mansion on the hillside. Many of the tourists were there on motorcycles. The seriously winding road to get to Jerome from Prescott is fun to drive, unless you’re afraid of heights.

Great place to visit. The museum is very clean and maticulasly kept. I wish had more time to spend here. The 30 minute movie provides a great overview of the town’s history. The staff is friendly. Make sure the kids see the glowing rock exhibit.

This museum discusses the history of Jerome, specifically the affect that mining had on the area (and what happened when it petered out). Lots of great pictures, artifacts, a terrific movie, and beautiful rocks. The views are fantastic, and there is a picnic area if you would like to sit out and eat, or just enjoy the majestic scenery. Just down the hill is a mine shaft with a plexiglass cover...stand over a 1900 foot hole and look down!! Both the museum and the mine shaft are must-stops in Jerome.

Looking for something different in Arizona after exploring the Grand Canyon? Try the Jerome State Historic Park & city just 30 miles north of Sedona. Fascinating historical information is shared in the 20 minute video in the museum, formerly the residence of the prominent Douglas family. The views from the mansion are amazing as well. Then just uphill is the town of Jerome itself: shops, restaurants, wine tasting venues, hotels. This place is well worth a day's worth of vacation time.
