Overview

The Douglas Mansion has been an eye-catching landmark in Jerome since 1916, when James S. Douglas built it on the hill just above his Little Daisy Mine. This former home is now a museum devoted to the history of the Jerome area and the Douglas family. The museum features photographs, artifacts and minerals in addition to a video presentation and a 3-D model of the town with its underground mines. There are more displays outside along with a picnic area offering a beautiful panoramic view of the Verde Valley.

Jerome is an interesting city. It is perched on the side of a mountain, literally. It started as an affluent town with up to 1500 residents and as mining declined, went down to less than 100. Currently, more than 500 people live there and it...More
