One of the earliest jails in Jerome was built toward the bottom of Cleopatra Hill on the edge of town. During the landslides of the 1930s and 1940s the jail became unstable and started to slowly slide down the hill. It is now called the Sliding Jail. The best places to park to tour the Historic District of Jerome are by the jail. In the first picture the jail looks fine; but photos 2 and 3 show the damage caused by the shifting ground.

Address: Hull Avenue
Directions: Jerome is on Arizona Highway 89A (Alternate).

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
