This is good value and gives a good insight to the town of Jerome. The photographs and descriptions are very interesting and there are several artefacts to look at.

Looked like a fun little ghost town. The day we went was ungodly hot and the gift shop at the entrance did not have a/c. Then we found out it was going to cost money to walk around the abandoned buildings and it was just too darn hot so we left. Maybe next time, if it's cooler.

I visited last week with my family and was very uncomfortable with the owner's need to negatively air his political views both on a hand written sign inside the Town and verbally to us as visitors. I have no problem with people having strong political beliefs, but feel it is inappropriate for a family tourist attraction to play politics (especially... More

Billed as a ghost town, this is basically a junkyard with some old mining equipment scattered around. A number of the buildings originated elsewhere. If you like old cars and trucks, you'll enjoy looking at the wrecks and restorations hiding around the property, and they have a pretty good collection of older semi-trucks and such. The old sawmill is interesting... More

If you are looking for a true mine and ghost town, skip this place. However, if you want to be entertained by 6 or 7 old timers in a run down junk yard, this place is for you. Pros: feeding chickens, donkey and goats; talking to old timers Con: hokey, but fun

We were visiting Jerome, Az and on our way out of town noticed the signs for Ghost Town. Out of curiosity we drove up the unpaved road to this place. As we approached we were tipped off by the collection of rusted out vehicles we viewed on the way. Still curious, we continued on. We parked the car and approached... More

This Ghost Town is worth every bit of time. We could have stayed longer. Hard to put into words because there was so much to see and learn. It was a highlight of our vacation

Have been there twice now after seeing Don and his restored KB-12 International on You Tube. Had to see it and was totally impressed, well worth the time. I always recommend this place to friends who holiday in Arizona.

Great place to take the family and see all the old items they have there! My son loved all the old trucks and chickens they had running around. I would recommend this to anyone.

It was certainly an honor to meet Don. He is a unique and true individual. There are things out there on his place that you will never see anywhere else. and go say hi to Pedro.
