Jerome is my favourite place in the United States. This was my first visit to the Douglas Mansion and I found out so much more about the town that I had not known. Beautiful scenery from the grounds of the house/museum. Wonderful

$7 admission well worth it for an adult. Informative video and over 4000 sq. ft. of displays in the main structure. Great information about mining in the area with human history a major focus. Mining attracted all kinds of characters. Some died here in gunfights and mine accidents. Their ghosts are all around it is said.

Jerome State Historic Park set in the old Douglas Mansion gives you an insight into what life must have been like in the bustling heyday of this once thriving mining town. The mansion itself is in wonderful condition and provides a good insight into how the town grew, the life of the miners, the ways in which they mined the... More

But really, it's all a concrete parking lot. We were a bit disappointed. Fortunately it was a glorious day and we did enjoy the view for a while.

From the grounds you can see the mine in the background with the old antique mining cars in the foreground. It was pretty and a unique peek into time. I really could feel the history in the air here. (More so than the Ghost town haha). I actually did not pay to go in to check it out any further... More

We had been in Jerome fifteen years ago when it was a run down, depressing art colony. It was refreshing today to see the revival of the mansion in the Historical Park. The movie gave an excellent history of the town and the copper industry. The quaint art shops and restaurants were fun to see

This is an absolutely beautiful mansion to visit. So much history is in it's walls. There is a very informative 28 minute video that fills you in on the history of the town. it is a self guided tour, both inside and out.
