A historic copper mining town Jerome, Arizona was once known as the wickedest town in the west.

Jerome was the largest producer of copper, gold, and silver in Arizona simultaneously in the 1920s before the mines closed in 1953 and it became the largest ghost town in the west.

Beginning in the1960s, the town was restored with historic accuracy and revitalized as an arts community, featuring multiple art studios and galleries and a monthly Art Walk. With a wide selection of wine tasting rooms, unique specialty shops, restaurants, hotels, and Bed & Breakfasts, there is no doubt Jerome is a truly special destination.

Nestled a mile high on the side of Cleopatra Hill overlooking the Verde Valley with spectacular views of the Red Rocks of Sedona and the distant San Francisco Peaks above Flagstaff, Jerome is a clear ‘don’t miss’ stop in Arizona. Today, Jerome is very much alive with writers, artists, artisans, musicians, historians, and families. They form a peaceful, colorful, thriving community built on a rich foundation of history and lore.
