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...more

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
If you are in Jerome for a couple of hours I strongly recommend a visit to this establishment, which has not only details on the mining activity in the area ("The history of Arizona is largely a history of mining -- "), but also tells...More
This is all about the history of mining in Jerome, including mining technology. There are some other displays, including an overview of geology, and a fair amount of rocks (including ones that luminesce, very interesting). It is mostly indoors, so if the weather is bad...More
I liked the mix of the exploration, industry and history of Jerome and the mining under one roof. The photo’s, displayed exhibits and furniture give a good impression on how things were.
The video they show, tells the whole story of Jerome in a brief...More
We have been coming to the Jerome State Historic Park since it first opened. Over the years we will bring friends who enjoy history and Arizona's past. This is a location that we offer friends as an option versus not bringing it up. It is...More

Amanda, Yes, it's an easy and quite scenic drive. Its about 20-35-min drive, depending on where in Sedona you're leaving from. The roads are steep, but are in great shape. Once in Jerome, many of the roads are narrow and one-way as you make your way up the hill through the town, so just be aware. It's a great town, with lot's of history at the park, and many great shops and restaurants to explore. Have a great visit!
