The introductory video is a well-done presentation of the founders, profiteers, and the tough working class citizens of Jerome's historical past; great written information, pictures, and artifacts both inside and on the grounds that really bring the unbelievably hard lives and tenacity of the people and this town to life. Highly recommend this as a first stop; spend several hours.

I happened to stop by before making my way into the actual town of Jerome. It really helped me find my way around and decide what I wanted to do once I got into town.

Amazing history up here in this OLD town of Jerome, AZ. The Douglas Mansion is full of artifacts that depict what it was like in this part of the country back in the last 1800's

If you are unfamiliar with the history of Jerome, I highly recommend visiting the Douglas Mansion. Make sure you watch the movie provided and walk outside for some amazing views and photo opportunities.

Jimmy Douglas designed & built the 2-story 8,700 sqft adobe mansion in 1916, to host Investors & Mining Officials as well as house his family. Oh, if those walls could talk! I tried to visualize the elegance & ambiance of this showplace in its heyday when it was fully furnished. Very large rooms & wide hallways make it obvious that... More

A fascinating museum at the top of a steep, winding road. Lots of old Mining equipment on display. The video about the early days of Jerome is well worth watching. The entry fee of $7.00 pp is reasonable. Good scenic views. Easy parking.

The Douglas Mansion has some great views. it's a beautiful mansion with a very informative museum housed inside. Allow yourself plenty of time to meander through all the rooms. There is also a 30 min movie on the history of Jerome that's worth watching if you have to time.

The small video that they show you is very informative and gives you a lot of info to think about when you are walking around the town.

Reasonable charge. You can sit in the spacious living room/guest shop and get the feel of the mansion. Lots of information about the area mines with great graphics models of the layers of the mine--no wonder Jerome had catastrophes with earthquakes and land slides.
