This is an opportunity to see some mining equipment up close. The Plexiglas cover over the shaft can be over powering for those with a fear of heights. The plaques at the displays are informational. It’s a quick stop on the way to somewhere else. 20 min, at most, self tour.

Audrey Headframe Park is worth a stop on your way to the Douglas Mansion. Besides the headframe to the Little Daisy Mine that produced 397,000 million tons of copper, 221 tons of silver, and 5 1/2 tons of gold between 1915 and 1938, there's a clear cover where you can look down the 1,900-foot shaft. There's an interesting chart comparing... More

This is just outside Jerome and, if you have visited the old mining town, you should see a part of the mining that brought the town into being. The depth of the mineshaft is shocking, especially when you stand over it looking straight down into the earth. The collection of mining hardware is worth seeing as a comparison to more... More

This was a nice little stop ,you get an up close at some mining equipment and a peek down an old mining shaft. be aware though, If the sun is shining just right the glare will prevent you from seeing more than 5 feet past the Plexiglas.

This park is free and just on the side of the road prior to Jerome State Park. Jerome has a great copper mining history. The old mineshaft is there, 1900 feet down, with a piece of Plexiglas over it for you to stand over and look down. Great photo opportunities with mining cages and mine carts.

We just happen to stubble across this on our drive about Jerome. It's a small stop beside the road just before the entrance to the Jerome State Historical Park. There is no fee, but they do accept donations. A great little piece of mining history. Well done displays and information. Glad we stopped!

An old mineshaft is fitted with a glass top and lightly, so that you can look down safely. An actual miner's elevator is on display. We liked knowing that the park was spearheaded by the owner of our B&B. Had no idea what a Headframe was until we saw one!

Excellent exhibits of mining - one of the best I've seen in Arizona and the West in general. I highly recommend visiting this park.

If you don't like spending hours in lines to see a historic site then this is you spot. An old miners shaft, 1900 feet down, that you can actually stand over on a plexiglass floor. With small information plaques around the area you can read tidbits of great historical facts at your pace.
