The Douglas Mansion is more of a museum than a furnished home. You will learn a lot about Jerome mining and what part the Douglas family had in it, along with information on how the home was built and be able to see some of the features like the central vacuum system. The video was very informative and fun. Lots of mining information here inside and outside of the home. The $7.50 charge is well worth it, free parking, nice picnic area and views of the Verde Valley. Restrooms on site. Nice gift shop.
