We had a hard time finding this, but found it by accident at the entrance to the Douglas Mansion. I wish they would put lights down the mineshaft so you can get more of a visual as to how deep it really is.

This was a very interesting piece of Jerome to stumble upon, however, it was quite hard to see through the tempered glass overtop the mineshaft. While I'm glad the mineshaft is very safe, I wish the views would have been more accessible.

Quick, easy, free stop in Jerome. Umm? Yeah. Deep hole. Seriously. Uncomfortable standing on the plexiglass. Can't see too far down as the lights were not functioning on my stop.

I had been to Jerome countless times in the past, but never knew about this attraction. The Audrey shaft (constructed in 1918) was one of the two shafts drilled near the Douglas Mansion by the United Verde Extension Company. The other shaft nearby is the Edith, constructed in 1913. Betwen 1919 and 1938, the Audrey shaft yielded over 320,000 tons... More

Quick, 5 to 20 min stop near the Jerome state historic park. You can look down the shaft standing over glass, but it was so dirty looking through the grates allowed a better look. No charge. There are picnic tables at the little park as well.

While we were staying in Jerome, we made a quick run down the hill to check out the mine shaft I'd read so much about online. I wandered around the exhibit for a little while then wiped off the plexiglass cover and peered down into the shaft. Deeper than the Empire State Building is high, it is indeed deep. Hard... More

We wanted to do a 1/2 day trip into Jerome while vacationing in Sedona, so we were unwilling to invest too much time in any one activity. This stop was easy, quick and had signs explaining the mine, some history and was definitely enough to give us an overview of the importance of the mining industry in this area. Views... More

This is a small historic park of the mine shaft from the early 1900s. The museum is up the street, but not free. The various signs tell you of the significants of what you are looking at. Amazing when you think about that period and what their working life would have been like. Worth the short investment of time.

This stop is interesting. Shows real mining equipment at a real mine. Great history. Well worth a stop.
