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.

Very informative displays provide a glimpse into the past. The attendants were very knowledgeable and accommodative. Practically every aspect of life in Jerome's "wicked" history was captured with pictorial examples and commentary. Excellent insight was shown in the mining history displays and how it evolved...More

A great place to stop and take photos of the views. The museum is also very interesting. We learned a lot about mining in general, the history of the area during the booming mining era and the general family life during that time period.
