“in the lovely verde valley!”
Make Jerome SHP and the Douglas Mansion your first stop when you visit Jerome. The park offers a great to introduction to the town's history and affords fantastic views of the city and the valley!The Douglas Mansion has been an eye-catching landmark in Jerome since 1916, when James S. Douglas built it on the hill just above his Little Daisy Mine. This former home is now a museum devoted to the history of the Jerome area and the Douglas family. The museum features photographs, artifacts and minerals in addition to a video presentation and a 3-D model of the town with its underground mines. There are more displays outside along with a picnic area offering a beautiful panoramic view of the Verde Valley.
I visited December 2013. Located in the original Historic Douglas Mansion. Lovely Museum showcasing the history of this interesting mining town
Very cute town, not for faint hearted drivers.
Some background: this was originally a mansion for a family that made a fortune in mining. It was then donated and turned into a park that detailed the city of Jerome's fascinating history. If you're visiting Jerome, you should definitely shop by here before hitting up the shops, galleries and restaurants!
