There are many fantastic things to do in Jerome AZ, making it one of the most popular places in the Grand Canyon state.
This central Arizona town has a long and rich past, from being a former mining town to attracting thousands of visitors every year today.
Jerome is one of the most haunted places in Arizona, and is among the ghost towns, and also exudes the charm of the Old Wild West.
Located at over 5000 feet, Jerome is one of the popular getaways for families looking for fun outdoors on the weekends.
I have visited Jerome on a scenic drive from Sedona, and on multiple day trips from Tucson and Phoenix, but recently I spent a weekend in Jerome as this mystic town beckons me with something new every time.
I highly recommend spending at least 2 days in Jerome if not more, especially as it is one of the best family-friendly destinations in Arizona.
Jerome is much more than its abundant mining history, architecture, and museums.
This cliff-top mining town offers splendid views of the valley comprising green scrub, cacti, and pines.
There are many fantastic activities and tours you can enjoy with your kids, besides escaping the heat of Phoenix or Sedona if you are here around summer.
Whether it is a quick stop on your road trip along Route 66 in Arizona, or you are looking to dive deep into this charming town’s past via a weekend trip to Jerome, in this post, I bring to you the best things to do in Jerome AZ, with something in store for every type of traveler.
HISTORY OF JEROME
Located high on Mingus Mountain, Jerome was once a bustling Wild West mining town in the Verde Valley highlands.
The town’s history goes back to the late 1800s when the first miners dug for the rich ore deposits.
But before Jerome was born, it was the site of a small mine where the local Yavapai tribe mined copper for their jewellery.
These first miners, the local Yavapai tribe, were prehistoric Native Americans. The Spanish followed in search of gold.
In 1876, three prospectors staked claims to rich copper deposits.
Located atop Cleopatra Hill between Sedona and Prescott, this historic copper and gold mining town was founded in 1876 on top of the largest copper mine in the United States.
The town was named after Eugene Jerome, a New York lawyer who financed the United Verde Copper Company.
However, Eugene Jerome never even set foot in Jerome.
When gold was discovered in the area people from all over the world began flocking here.
From the 1880s to the early 1950s, Jerome prospered.
The United Verde Company, run by William Clark, launched mining operations in 1883. Its open pit mine was nicknamed the “Big Hole.”
The town grew from 250 residents in 1890 to over 15,000 in the 1920s.
It attracted miners, bootleggers, saloon keepers, gamblers, and prostitutes.
To keep their employees entertained, the mining companies built over two dozens saloons, restaurants, more than 15 brothels and even an opera house, beside a post office, schools, and other administrative buildings.
It is believed that at one time there were 14 Chinese restaurants in town.
Jerome produced billions of dollars in copper, gold, zinc and silver. In its zenith, Jerome was the fourth-largest town in Arizona.
The growth also brought the infamous gamblers and bad boys to Jerome, with hundreds dying in gunfights, stabbed, strangled, beaten to death, overdosed on opium, or committing suicide.
The town was also filled with so much corruption and death it became known as the “wickedest city in the West.”, first reported so by a New York newspaper, with the name still being its tagline.
In 1953 when gold and copper deposits vanished and the last mine shut down, only about 50 people stayed behind.
Jerome’s fortunes were reversed and on the verge of becoming a ghost town.
Luckily, during the 60s and 70s, some artists discovered Jerome and began moving in.
Artists renovated homes and re-opened abandoned shops, and created the Jerome Historical Society to protect the town’s buildings.
In 1967, Jerome became a designated U.S. National Historic District.
Jerome is today one of the classic Western frontier towns in Arizona.
Jerome is also believed to be the largest ghost town in the country.
Today the town’s population is about 500 residents, where an eclectic mix of artists, craftspersons, inn-keepers, restaurant owners, writers and musicians have made Jerome their home.
Victorian properties from the late 1890s still stand today and are occupied by their owners.
You can see many art galleries, artisan shops, boutiques, and restaurants.
HOW TO REACH JEROME, AZ
Jerome is between Prescott and Sedona and within very close driving distance of Clarkdale and Cottonwood, Arizona.
From Sedona – Jerome is less than 28 miles southwest of Sedona AZ. Take State Route 89A to Cottonwood, then through Clarkdale into Jerome.
It is one of the most beautiful drives from Sedona and I highly recommend it.
From Phoenix and Scottsdale – It takes about 2 to 2.5 hours to drive from both Phoenix and Scottsdale.
Take Interstate 17 Freeway north and exit State Route 260 at Camp Verde. Go left (northwest) on 260 into Cottonwood and then left on 89A through Clarkdale into Jerome AZ.
I like Discover Cars and believe me, as a frequent traveler regularly renting cars from them, I recommend them for easy and quick online booking.
Thanks to their long list of car rental companies, you can easily compare the car types and prices before picking. They also sometimes offer pick up as well.

Opened in 1927 as United Verde Hospital, Jerome Grand Hotel is the largest hotel in town and one of the prominent landmarks.
A highly-functioning hospital until it closed in 1950, the building stood empty for over four decades.
It reopened as the Jerome Grand Hotel in 1996.
The 30,000-square-foot, five-story, 1926 Spanish Mission-style building atop Cleopatra Hill in the Verde Valley is one of the most haunted places in the town as well with many apparition sightings luring ghost hunters to this hotel.

A headframe is the hulking structure positioned above a mine shaft used to support the pulleys and other equipment needed for the cables to raise and lower elevators or ore cars.
After a large copper deposit was discovered, the Audrey shaft was built to extract large amounts of high-grade ore.
Constructed in 1918, you’ll see historic mining equipment and a 1,700-foot mining shaft.
The Audrey headframe and shaft were considered state-of-the-art technology for mining equipment.

The original building housed Jerome’s newspaper, a bank, and a drugstore.
Known for its exquisite, lavish Victorian-style architecture with each room a different colour, the hotel was abandoned in the 1940s when the landslides began, and the Bartlett became unstable.
Today, see the skeleton of the once-mighty Bartlett Hotel on tour, exploring the hallowed grounds of the abandoned hotel, which feels a little ghostly, spooky, or perhaps even haunted.

Liberty Theatre is one of the historic landmarks and among the fun things to do in Jerome AZ.

One of the heritage buildings in Jerome, Chief Surgeon’s House, constructed in 1917 is one of the top places to visit.
As the name indicates, Chief Surgeon’s House was established as the primary residence for the Chief Surgeon in Jerome, Arizona.
Now, listed on the National Historic Registry since the year of 1966, the beautiful white stucco mansion is a charming bed and breakfast.
I highly recommend staying overnight here, choosing from their lavish guest suites with wood or Mexican Saltillo-tile floors, king beds, and eclectic furniture pieces.

Among the top things to do in Jerome Az is the Sliding Jail.
In 1905, the Jerome Sliding Jail was built into a hill, and its inmates included gamblers, drunks, claim jumpers, prostitutes, and gunfighters.
In the 1930s, extreme and constant excavation during the mining boom caused extensive landslides.
This building began slowing downhill in 1938, following a mine blast.
The jail slid slowly stopping at various locations until it finally stopped on its current spot, about 225 feet from where it started, along the main street of Jerome beside a parking lot.
