You get to Jerome by Alternate Arizona Route 89 (89A). There are something like 157 curves in 18 miles. Going is slow; but the views are spectacular. Jerome itself cling to the side of steep hill. It is considered a "ghost town" even though it has around 250 fulltime residents. Jerome the town, like its residents are unique and interesting. I saw two T-Shirts I liked that indicate the character or Jerome past and present. One was "Women Who Behave Rarely Make History" celebrating "The Cribs" which was the redlight district and "Jerome a Hard-Drinking Biker Town with an Artist Problem". If you are ever in the area, I recommend checking out Jerome, it's worth it.
Jerome has a fairly extensive Historic District. They put a lot of time effort and expense into putting up attractive and informative plaques telling about the history of the buildings and the town. They also have a nice museum in town which is definitely worth a visit.
On a steep hillside just across from the town of Jerome is the Jerome State Historic Park where you can learn the history of the formation of the town and its most famous residents. The main part of the park is located in the old Douglas Mansion.
