First, I am a little biased, since myself, jay Kinsella and Mike Rollins actually built this park. But, we did it so people could get a look at something unique. With a grant from the Arizona Office of tourism, we capped the shaft with structural glass and lit it with a xenon arc light (same light that comes out of the top of the Luxor in Las Vegas). We also moved the Childs - Irving power generation station to the site and after pouring 37 yards of concrete, we set the equipment and built a building around it. This is the station that was decommissioned by APS in 2005(?) and it was donated the the Jerome Historical Society. So, check out the Jerome Historical Society's Audrey Headframe Park. It is free, but your small donation keeps the lights on!
