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.
