On a short jaunt from Sedona to Prescott, this is the perfect stop. Browse through the town at the historic buildings, mining equipment and plaques. The panoramic view from this tiny town into the valley below is superb.

Fascinating, if you like history. Be sure to make the time to go upstairs and explore each room. Can be a little tricky finding the road leading to State Park. Keep an eye for the signs. 👍

Upon entering, the man working said rudely that we couldn’t bring our tiny dogs in, even if we carried them. First of all, there are no signs on the building saying no pets. There’s a sign saying “ don’t leave your pets in the car.”...More

We really enjoyed our visit to the museum and the view from the grounds is amazing! I loved the movie shown there and all the old pictures and trying to find the buildings in town that we had learned about at the museum.

This site gives you the history of the mining town and the familes that inhabitied it. It has many antiquest, but are in cased so there is no risk of bringing small children. There is video and rock sections that will keep your kids entertained.

Jerome was once a ghost town that has since changed to a thriving city. There is a great view, many shops, and a winery and if you are courageous enough, you can drive the 34 miles to Prescott with 128 switchbacks. Or go back down...More
