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.

but so glad we stopped! It was a great little history lesson and my kids (10 and 13) loved looking down the mine shaft. Totally worth a 15-20 minute stop!!

If this was the only thing you did in Jerome it would be worth the trip. Take the time to read the history and look down the mine shaft, its pretty amazing to think men used to go down there.

Immediately adjacent to the Douglas Mansion, the Audrey Headframe is an interesting structure as a reconstruction of the equipment infrastructure that hauled men and equipment down into the mine and ore back to the surface. You can stand on a glass platform and attempt to look down into the abyss that ia 1900 feet deep. That is the equivalent to... More

We stopped in Jerome because we had some time to spend before a train ride. This site is a look into the past, with an old mine shaft as the main attraction. There is some old equipment within the fence off area of this park. It was a little interesting, but I would not go out of my to see... More

The old mine shaft has a plexiglass cover so you can look down the 1900 foot deep shaft. They have various old mining gear on display along with descriptive information about the history of this historic mining town. Well worth the 20 minute stop.

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
