Overview

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.

The town is very cute and you could spend an afternoon/lunch there. Public bathrooms by the firehouse. The mine was not enjoyable.

If you want to understand how we got copper and silver and gold out of one mine this is the place to visit.The $7.00 was worth it, the 3D maps were great to see what a mine is looking for.

For a look at the history of Jerome, this is your best bet. The introductory video, which runs pretty much continuously, is 30 minutes long, which might seem like too much -- but it is well done, and often amusing. After that, the exhibits in...More
