Jerome

Jerome sits above what was the largest copper mine in Arizona and produced an astonishing 3 million pounds of copper per month. Today the mines are silent, and Jerome has become the largest ghost town in America.
Jerome's personality has changed dramatically in the past 30 years. Once a thriving mining camp between the late-1880s and early 1950s, Jerome is now a bustling tourist magnet and artistic community with a population of about 450. It includes a combination of artists, craft people, musicians, writers, hermits, gift shop proprietors and fallen-down-building landlords.
Jerome is an enchanting town and a photographer's paradise. From its external appearances it hasn't changed much in nearly 100 years. Many of the buildings used by present-day business folks are those built after the fires of 1894 and 1899. Due to the 30-degree incline of the mountainside, gravity has pulled a number of buildings down the slope. To the delight of some, one of those buildings was the town's jail. Those buildings that are still standing make for interesting visiting. Many of the buildings are now interesting artist's galleries, gift shops, textile shops and restaurants. This is a fun day trip or afternoon adventure from our Sedona Bed and Breakfast hotel.
