Historic Jerome

Saves: 55
Check-ins: 13
Billed as "The Largest Ghost Town in America," Jerome was a mining settlement and produced 3 million pounds of copper a month in its prime. The town was rediscovered in the 1960s by a colony of artists who breathed new life into it and incorporated their surroundings into their artwork - remniscent of Bisbee down near the AZ border. The town overlooks Cottonwood and Sedona and almost feels slanted on the mountainside. Jerome is also the home of Tool frontman, Maynard James Keenan, who operates Puscifer the Store where you'll find all sorts of music-related knick knacks, sloganized clothing for kids of all ages, and there's even a barbershop on site. Keenan also has an upscale wine bar, Caduceus Cellars. If you want to stop for the night, you can stay at the Jerome Grand Hotel (rumored to be haunted) or the Ghost City Inn Bed and Breakfast.

Be sure to visit The Jerome Grand Hotel for lunch and drinks...Walk is steep from downtown so if you’re not up for a hike parking is at the top

The Little Daisy. Once a hotel used to house minors then left abandoned, a couple recently bought it at Auction and put one million into and it recently sold for 5.9 million. Roof is missing so they made it into an outdoor living space.

The Surgeons house... Now a bed and breakfast.
