Jerome was the talk of the Territory,

a boom town of its time, the darling of

promoters and investors. The mines

were nourished and exploited by

financiers who brought billions of dollars

in copper, gold, and silver from its

depths. Changing times in the Territory

saw pack burros, mule drawn freight

wagons, and horses replaced by steam

engines, autos, and trucks. Fires

ravaged the clapboard town and

landslides destroyed whole sections.

Jerome was always rebuilt. At the mercy

of the ups and downs of copper prices,

labor unrest, depressions and wars,

Jerome's mines finally closed in 1953.

Jerome is built on Cleopatra Hill above a

vast deposit of copper. Native Americans

were the first miners, seeking colored

stones. The Spanish followed, seeking

gold but finding copper. Anglos staked the

first claims in the area in 1876, and United

Verde mining operations began in 1883,

followed by the Little Daisy claim. Jerome

grew rapidly from tent city to prosperous

company town as it followed the swing

of the mine's fortunes. The mines, the

workers, and those who sought its wealth,

formed Jerome's colorful history. Americans,

Mexicans, Croatians, Irish, Spaniards, Italians,

and Chinese made the mining camp a

cosmopolitan mix that added to its

rich life and excitement.

 

 


After the mines closed in 1953 and

"King Copper" left town, the population

went from a peak of 15,000 in the 1920s

to a low of 50 people. The Jerome Historical

Society guarded the buildings against

vandalism and the elements, the

Douglas Mansion became a State Park

in 1965, and Jerome became a National

Historic Landmark in 1976. During the 60's

and 70's, during the time of the counter

culture, Jerome offered a haven for artists.

Soon newcomers and Jerome old timers

were working together to bring Jerome

back to life. Today, Jerome is very much

alive with writers, artists, artisans, musicians,

historians, and families. They form a peaceful,

colorful, thriving community built on a rich

foundation of history and lore.
