Overview

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.

A revived ghost town from the copper/silver/gold mining era for this community, restored as a artist colony town and doing very well at it...I do suggest you be sure of your driving skills..the road is narrow and has switchbacks.

Not good. People not friendly. Shops not worth the trip and employees rude. Waste of time. Shops redundant and over priced. Difficult to get to and time better spent in other areas of AZ.

It's worth the winding drive to this little piece of history - nice to chat to the locals in the town stores and take in the views and let your imagination take hold in this historic place. Life must have been tough in Jerome back...More

We pictured it to be a real ghost town, similar to a Western movie set....basically its old buildings and alot of shops and restaurants. Its a good place to visit for a couple of hours and have some lunch. Views are nice.

Get off the highway for a few minutes and enjoy breathtaking views of mountains. Jerome is perched high above a beautiful valley and has lots of cool shops to check out.

Really worth a stop, even if you don't pay and tour the mansion. There are tremendous views up the hill of the town of Jerome and some great views of the valley below as well. It is helpful to have information from the tour though...More

Really cool old house with lots of history and tons of picture. Not that expensive either. And the view is one of a kind!

The Douglas museum is part of the state park. It was built as a family home. There was a very informative 20 minute video reviewing the history of the town and the mining operations. There were models, pictures and posters that highlighted the people, events...More

Jerome is my favourite place in the United States. This was my first visit to the Douglas Mansion and I found out so much more about the town that I had not known. Beautiful scenery from the grounds of the house/museum. Wonderful

$7 admission well worth it for an adult. Informative video and over 4000 sq. ft. of displays in the main structure. Great information about mining in the area with human history a major focus. Mining attracted all kinds of characters. Some died here in gunfights...More
