Even for those with hyper minds (constantly needing to be stimulated) like myself. Very interesting, not a minute of wondering or wanting to bail!

Glad we made it!

Good food: Grapes restaurant.
Great wine: Caduceus Winery

Enjoy

Yes, worth the stop while in the area. We stopped at the Douglas mansion aka Jerome State Park, early in the day. Short film with a lot of info and history. Takes a few minutes to look around the mansion, nicely done, not over done. Probably an hour or so is all the time you need there.

This old mansion that once belonged to a mining tycoon's family is now dedicated to providing in depth information on the history of the Jerome mining industry and all the good and bad sides of it. There's the option of watching a film, which we didn't do, but the museum is all self-guided and goes through almost the entire mansion (upstairs, downstairs, and outside). I would definitely go back and spend more time here.

This museum is in the old Douglas Mansion. There was a movie about the interesting history of Jerome, some very nice rock and mineral specimens (including a fluorescent rock room), early 1900's artifacts and lots of mining information. Well worth the stop.

Enjoyed very much. It was nice to learn a little of the history of Jerome and the man who developed it. Very nice.
