Owner description: A popular tourist stop, this jail slid 225 feet downhill during a "land slippage" caused by the many mining shafts in the area.

Along with the rest of Jerome's old history, this is an interesting site. This gives you a view of what was happening to Jerome after the mines shut down - it was all sliding down Cleopatra Hill!

You'll only know about this if you went to the big museum. I would not have wanted to be incarcerated when the jail slid down the hill!

My sister and I like to take interesting photos. This area was just a wonderful one to see. You have to park a ways away and walk to the jail, but there are some great sites to take photos of as you walk around.
