The Audry Headframe is a wooden Headframe witch is interesting by itself. The Park has several other items of mining history and good signage telling about the different things. The glass-topped mineshaft is excellent, I walked across it and it was a good-scary thing but probably not for anyone afraid of heights, you can see way down the mineshaft.

A headframe is the structure built over a mine shaft and was used to haul ore up out of the mine. The Audrey headframe (1918) was used to haul over $125 million in copper, gold and silver out of the ground. Edith headframe is nearby. Mine shaft is 1900' deep ~ hard to fathom.

A small area which helps to illustrate the workings of the copper mines when they were at their peak. The top headframe is well preserved and their are other artifacts to see in the same area.

This one is free and the mineshaft is very cool. Yu can do the whole thing in 10 minutes, but it worth the photo op.

Loved the Audrey Mine. It goes down 1900 feet, and there's a chart showing that it's twice as deep as the Eifell Tower is high. You can look all the way down, but it's safe, because they put some glass over the top. You can stand on that glass if you're brave, just to be directly over the mine. You... More

This is one for the books. You must head into Jerome State Park to see this deep mining shaft with a glass cover over it. This is preserved history of the huge mining industry that took place here. Can you imagine how deep they had to drill in this area at Jerome to get to the precious copper? It is... More

Stopped here while driving and took pictures. The Audrey Headframe is interesting and there are plaques explaining the exhibits. Bring your camera and reading glasses. It is outside so may not be good on a rainy day. Old equipment once used in the area is also on display. You can get up really close for pictures.

Located right next to the Douglas Mansion this shaft is one of three that is part of the Daisy mine. It will only take you about 10 minutes to see it all but is worth seeing. There is a thick glass top on the shaft that allows you to see part way down. It is crazy to think that this... More

Don't blink, or you will drive right past this unassuming display of amazing mining history. Stand inside the entrance to the shaft, but be careful, if the glass floor breaks, you will fall down a shaft that exceeds the height of some of the Worlds tallest monuments. (Chart inside the shaft opening shows the Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building, and... More

Some places the almost-missed is the greatest gem. We were leaving Jerome, and caught site of one of the last mining exhibits...and decided to drive by, with low expectations of this rusty small outdoor homage to the copper mining. Boy we were incredibly surprised and thrilled by what we found. Here was the original 1913 mine shaft, 1900 feet deep,... More
