What a fantastic junk yard! It has a working saw mill and soooo many old cars. Neat fun old buildings - dentist, school, assay office, small farm with goats and chickens. If you love old trucks, go visit this neat place! I spent over 2 hours here walking around and enjoying it all.

We truly enjoyed our visit back in time which was well-worth the $5 entry fee. We found a snake which had died with mouth open wide and would like to know what demise would have explained this?

No ghosts here..! Just a junk yard with a ton of very old junk cars and tools galore. Enter through a little gift shop, pay 5.00 to enter the yard and explore the junk I'm sorry to say. At the end you'll find 3 goats to feed. The little shacks you'll pass by are just really old sheds.

This small little ghost town is definitely worth a visit whilst in Jerome. Its only about $5 to enter and you can spend about 30 minutes walking through the old town seeing the old dentists office, the shoe repair place, old cottage and so on. Its really packed with old cars and machines which did not interest me but if... More

Unfortunately the man that created this little town passed away on 10/17/16. We had the pleasure of meeting him 3 years ago when we visited. This is a town taken back in time with so many antiques. There are a few animals around as well, some chickens, goats and two donkeys. it is a real working sawmill as well. A... More

Very inexpensive self guided tour through some Arizona history. Plan on spending a couple hours. Old mining equipment, historic vehicles and other eclectic items!

Visited here whilst visiting Jerome. Having read reviews we were unsure what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised. Great old vehicles and historic town business displays with an old working sawmill. A real eclectic mix of historic artefacts from when the town was a busy mining community. An interesting stop for an hour or so.

There is a lot of junk and a lot of treasures. It would be so much better if they would clean it up a little. When we were there the owner had died just 4 days before.

I agree with JJH's review. If you like old vehicles, equipment with motors, etc. it will give you something interesting to look at. If you need to stretch your legs after driving many miles, stop & have a look.
