We mainly went here because someone had told us to eat at the Haunted Hamburger. It was quite good and the area interesting. We could see all the way to the San Francisco Mountains in Flagstaff once you walk up the hill to the lodge.

Watch the movie - even though my 11 year old said it was dorky. Best to go before town visit to enjoy the town more.

this historic park is the site of the Douglas mansion, which was donated to the town. It was turned into a historical museum. There is a very interesting, short film, about the mining history of the town. There are interesting indoor and outdoor exhibits of mining equipment, old mining pictures, and a model of the town including where the mines... More

This was a very interesting museum/mansion. Watched video with some good history and walked through the mansion. Great view. Worth a stop.

I missed this attraction due to a family emergency but my husband and two kids were able to visit. My 10 year old daughter apparently loves history because she did not want to leave! She could have spent hours in here - definitely worth the small price of admission!

Not very captivating, but the old maps of the towns were great to look at and you can't beat a 5 dollar entrance fee. You get some great views of the surrounding area also from that location.

This is a must-see for anyone visiting Jerome. The reasonably priced $5 fee includes admission to the Douglas mansion, which is now a museum focused on the history of Jerome and the Douglas family. There's also a 30 minute video that tells the fascinating history of the old mining town. It's a great way to get oriented to the area... More

Drove down to the Jerome Historic State Park – a mansion built by one of the mine owners. A good video about Jerome and interesting, if a little-dated interpretive displays. Really hot now as we get below 5000’ – difficult to stand outside in the sun. Views from the park of Old Jerome are good.
