Jerome is a town in the Black Hills of Yavapai County in the State of Arizona. Founded in the late 19th century on Cleopatra Hill overlooking the Verde Valley, it is more than 5,000 feet (1,500 m) above sea level. In the 1920’s over 10,000 people lived here when it was an active copper mine. The closest town is Cottonwood, which is south of Sedona.
The town of Jerome is considered a ghost town. There are a number of ghost towns in the States that still have residents living there, they are not all abandoned. Some of the places that claim to have ghosts are Spook Hall, Mile High Inn, and the Connor Hotel. I had lunch with my friend Joey at The Haunted Hamburger, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t haunted.
It’s easy to learn more about Jerome on the internet, so in this post, I mostly wanted to share with you how I viewed the town through the camera lens. Joey and I walked all around this quaint town for hours but didn’t go in a single store to shop, because we found the buildings and its character to be fascinating enough. Hover over the images to see what they are.
