Owner description: A popular tourist stop, this jail slid 225 feet downhill during a "land slippage" caused by the many mining shafts in the area.
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Slid down the side of the hill/mountain about 225 feet where Jerome is located. Surprised how much survived intact

You have to stop by and see the jail... very cool! Can't believe it moved almost 250 feet down the hill!

There is not much to see, but the one building, but it is worth the stop while walking or driving through Jerome. IT cannot be seen from the road. An historical plaque tells of the unique history of the jail

Disappointing. Just a shell of an old building at the bottom of town. Really not much to see, other than to read the historic plaque.
