Mansion, museum...yes to all. This is a great place and not to miss while in Jerome. Nice history of the copper mining industry during the early 1900's and the mansion with the tech during that time was remarkabe to say the least.

If you are in Jerome.. you have to go here. The idea that such a MODERN home was built on the middle of no where and has stood the test of time is wonderful .

A huge mansion! I cant believe all the technology they had - including a central vacuum system - from 1916! Lots of other information can be learned about Jerome here.

The park rangers at the mansion were able to answer almost every one of our questions, and we had quite a few. Nice and clean facilities, from the picnic area to the restrooms.

This was more of a museum. I was expecting a furnished mansion. There were a few furnishings but more of a history of the copper mining industry. Still interesting and worth a stop.

Definitely watch the video for the best background into the area. Exhibits interesting, but required too much reading. Some really intriguing displays show the structure of mines.

We enjoyed the tour of the house and found the movie very interesting. We learned about mining In the early 1900's. The movie is a great introduction to the town of Jerome. We had been to Bisbee AZ so we had gone down into the mine there so we were acquainted with some of the information. Taking an actual mine... More

It is hard to imagine building this beautiful old home right next to the working mine, but this was more of a working showcase than anything else. The view is incredble and the eligance of the building given the time and remote nature of Jerome makes this an interesting visit.

Douglas Mansion is well worth a visit if you're interested in learning about the history of the town of Jerome, the mining industry of the late 19th and early 20th century, and the Yavapai Black Hills area. Be sure to take in the short documentary video, narrated by a friendly ghost. The views from the mansion are absolutely stunning.

Nice movie to give you background on Mr. Douglas and the mining community. Beautiful views of the valley below. Would have liked to see the house as a furnished house instead of a museum, though.
