The view of the town of Jerome from the State Park was so pretty! The town was interesting; it's a shame the town has become a ghost town now.

I had not visited Jereome State Historic Park in several years. I always enjoy going there and learning about the history in the Jerome area. There is so much information and historical pictures and artifacts to look at. I live only about 30 minutes away, but just don't take the time to go up there.

While we were visiting Sedona, it was recommended that we visit Jerome. We could see the town 30 miles away, virtually on the side of a mountain, and had wondered what it WAS. SO glad we made the side trip! It's a 1/2 hour drive from Sedona. Once you get through Cottonwood, you drive literally up a mountain to get... More

On our last visits to the Sedona/Cottonwood area, the park was closed. We were excited to visit it on this visit. Jerome was a mining boom town providing millions of tons of copper in it's hayday. After the mines petered out, Jerome became almost a ghost town. The very informative video at the park painted a very real picture of... More

We set aside the full day for visiting, and first place we visited was Jerome, a real old mining town. We first went to the museum, and watched a very entreating introductory video on the history of the town. The video is free and plays on a continuos loop every 30 minutes. The video was very well done, both my... More

Jerome is a great little ex mining town just a few twisty miles from Sedona Az. I'd suggest before you visit the museum. Located on a great old house you learn a lot about Jerome thru the years and life there. This $5 stop is likely the best value of any trip.

If you're going to Sedona, this is a sidetrip not that far out...the town is unique, so all of the town is awesome to see. No regrets here.

This State Park, which is in and around the mansion of the Little Daisy and other famous copper mines on the outskirts of Jerome, is fascinating. It tells the story of mining in the area and the millions of tons of copper, silver and gold produced in the area and it's rise and fall. The photos and artefacts in the... More

Local guides took us up the mountainside to explore this old mining town. Had a blast trying to imagine the HEYday of this historic site. Learning geology and geography of the southwest...we stumbled across some old treasures here in Jerome! Preservation is key to our History. Thanks for keeping this available for us to see.

This place is such a funky little town. It is the place you could dream of just packing up and moving to without hesitation. The atmosphere is a laid back, worry free kind of area that just calls out for you to come back and stay. I actually spoke to one of the store owners that was from Fort Worth... More
