It was nice time in the old mansion. An entertaining history video, with a ghost host. Never realized how large Jerome was in it's hay day.

The park is the old Douglas mansion, which is an interesting building. Not too much of it is set up to show how the family lived there. The rooms are used for displays. There is a lot of history of the family and the mining...More

Great place for learning the history of Jerome and the mines and way of life way back in the 1890s. Be sure to watch the video. Great view of Jerome from it.

This was our first visit to Jerome and we stopped here first and glad we did. The movie tells the story of the city and made the rest of the visit much more relevant. The mansion and the artifacts were very nice. Well worth the...More
