An Artsy Detour
Take a Day Trip to Jerome
If you’re looking for a break from the wineries or a unique town to add to your Verde Valley itinerary, Jerome is the place to be. Located just a few miles past Clarkdale, it’s a quirky mix between a historic mining town, artist’s village, and a haunted house.
Jerome began as a copper mining camp in the 1800s and grew to be the fourth largest city in Arizona by the 1920s. Between four disastrous fires, the Great Depression, and the reduced demand for copper after WWII, it slowly declined into a ghost town.
Today, tourism and art have revived the community and made it one of Northern Arizona’s most visited towns. Although the population is only about 450, thousands of people drive up Cleopatra Hill every year to visit Jerome’s mining museum, stroll its unique shops, enjoy great food and music at the local saloons and relax with a glass of wine at the Jerome Winery.
