  • So many things to look at. Lots of cool old trucks. The old man sure had quite a collection. We loved the town of Jerome and plan to go back soon.  more »

  • We had fun and enjoyed the place. I would say that be prepared to use your imagination and if you enjoy self guided tours and trying to figure out details of what things are then you will enjoy coming here. It’s a very eclectic place with A LOT of old cars, engines, and random bits and pieces to look at. My only suggestion would be to increase the amount of signs etc to let us know the history of the buildings that are there.
  • I was pretty disappointed with this ghost town...I thought there would be more historical narrative, but there was none whatsoever. It felt like a huge junk yard. Yes there were some interesting looking old vehicles and equipment. We were surprised to see some farm animals too like chickens, a couple of donkeys, and a couple of goats. Overall, it may be a little entertaining for little kids, but there is not much to see.
