Must see · State Park · History Museum
Jerome State Historic Park is a state park of Arizona, US, featuring the Douglas Mansion, built in 1916 by a family of influential mining entrepreneurs in Jerome, Arizona, a mining region in the northeast of the Black Hills, east Yavapai County. A museum is located in the old Douglas Mansion.

Jerome State Historic Park reopened on October 14, 2010, after being closed since February 27, 2009, because of budget cuts and the need to repair the historic mansion. Renovation and stabilization were funded by a state heritage grant and donations from the Douglas family. The park is open on a seven-day schedule thanks to additional funding raised by Yavapai County, the city of Jerome, and the Jerome Historical Society.

  • Wonderful displays from the mining era pertaining to Hutton's mine, The Little Daisy Mine (not little at all) and a great movie. Cheap admission. Very informative. Situated in Hutton's former mansion. Only drawback is the HVAC in the building is a swamp cooler. So it is tepid and humid in there in the AZ summer: June-October.
  • Phenomenal and impressive for another amAZing State Park. A must see while visiting Jerome. At one time 15,000 people lived in Jerome in its heyday! Come see the important history of Central AZ.
