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.

Jerome’s a great example of rebirth after demise. The museum explains the past and is a way to understand the rebirth of what easily could have become another forgotten place. After visiting the museum walk the streets of Jerome. Look. See. Visualize. Contemplate.

I recommend everyone to make this there first stop on a trip to Jerome to get a sense of the history of the town. Wonderful exhibits and a video narrated by a ghost was a great introduction to this once bustling mining town.
