This is a very interesting mansion with a lot of history. Beautifully built with an incredible view of Sedona and the Flagstaff snow covered mountains, the mansion actually has a mine shaft in the back yard.

We visited the museum twice on two different trips to Jerome while collecting geological and historical information for a new book on Gold in Arizona. We very much enjoyed this museum with all of its exhibits, rock specimens, 3-D models of the mine workings, etc. It is worth the visit!

Stop here first before going any further into Jerome. Pay the 5.00, go thru the museum and Watch the 30 minute video on the history of the town. It will truly make you appreciate the town! The view from grounds is nice too.

Visit here first on entering Jerome. The film is well done and gives a good overview of the town. Wonderful displays of the town and mining history.

This was originally the stately home of the Douglas family. The high ceilings are amazing. The gardens outdoors are nicely kept, and the old cars in the stable/garage are restored nicely. Well worth the $5 admission, and has plenty of history explained inside. Clean bathrooms too. Some original furniture inside too, all in all a good visit.

He wonders why I prefer to visit sites like this without him. I could have spent hours here and he gives it 30 minutes. The film was very well done and informative. I love the exhibits as well as the mining explanations. I want to go back alone!

This town is in a very interesting location, so visiting the Mansion is the key to understanding Jerome's history. Very cool indeed, and worth checking out on your way up the hill. All of Jerome is cool to see.

Very interesting history of the mine and the town. I especially enjoyed seeing the movie and there was lots of memorabilia to see. It gave me an appreciation of where the town was at one time in history.
