I really loved Jerome. Audrey Headframe Park is a must visit if you are in town. The walk over the glass platform is an experience! The shaft you stand over is deeper than the Empire State Building is tall!! The mine lifts that are exhibited...More

Great equipment that was surprising still in use to generate power for central AZ until only a few years ago. The local folks have done a good job preserving this corner of history by the museum. Cheers

We couldn’t get on a tour, so we stopped on our own. Very interesting place for a short stop. Go to the museum for more information.

Okay, this isn’t a very big park, but it packs a lot of bang for the buck into a small space. The main feature of this historical park is the vertical Audrey mineshaft of the old Little Daisy Mine. This mineshaft is over 1900 feet...More

Love this place. Can stand over a 1900ft shaft on a sheet of glass and look down. There’s some awesome old parts and pieces to the mine too. If you shout down into the shaft you can hear it come out across the way. Very...More
