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

An old copper (gold and silver also) mining town with a fascinating history now functions as tourist trap. Still has old world charm with many art galleries of local works. Great old hotel on top of hill worth the visit ( was hospital once).

Okay, I couldn't really choose the option in the list. We just visited the town of Jerome which is heralded as a ghost town and a former copper mining town. Some of the old buildings like the jail and others are still there so they make great pictures. But, def park (it's tough!) and take a walk through the town... More

The park is dedicated to the mining industry and wealth that was derived from the various ores. The mansion were the park is located illustrated the opulence of the owners of the mines.

Stand over a mine or in the miner's caged elevator (for free) or drop into the Douglas Mansion to get the real story of Jerome. Be sure to take the time to watch the video they show.

This is a great old town located on the side of a mountain near Sedona Az. It was originally developed as a copper mining city. Built on the side of a mountain it has maintained most of its originality. Many southwestern artists have moved into the old buildings which are amazing. The view of the Verde valley is breathing taking... More

Visited the state park and it's the best place to take pics of Jerome and the mountains! Pay $5 and do the tour of the museum which was an old mansion. It's well worth it! I would recommend stopping here at the beginning of your trip so you can watch the short video about the history of Jerome.
