Overview

The Douglas Mansion has been an eye-catching landmark in Jerome since 1916, when James S. Douglas built it on the hill just above his Little Daisy Mine. This former home is now a museum devoted to the history of the Jerome area and the Douglas family. The museum features photographs, artifacts and minerals in addition to a video presentation and a 3-D model of the town with its underground mines. There are more displays outside along with a picnic area offering a beautiful panoramic view of the Verde Valley.

The video is the highlight here. It gives a good 30 min overview of the rise & fall of Jerome. You get a good feel of the town history and are better able to understand the town. Definitely worth a trip.

Nice historic review of the area. Very clean and friendly. Indoor museum and outdoor area to picnic if you choose to do so. One of the attractions that is worth the entry fee.

There is a beatiful view of the valley from their parking lot. I've been through this mansion on two different trips and enjoy the film, historical items and especially the mineral rock room. Don't miss out on the black light glowing mineral room.
