Jerome - The Largest Ghost Town in America
Jerome was a copper mining camp, growing from a settlement of tents to a
roaring mining community. But after four disastrous fires,The Depression and the end of World War II, the thriving population of 15,000 decreased to only 100. The hardy souls left promoted Jerome as a historic ghost town and in 1967 Jerome was designated a National Historic District by the federal
government. Today the mines are silent and Jerome has become the largest ghost town in America.
Shrugging off its past troubles,Jerome is now an enchanting town (and a photographer's paradise) with a thriving artist community, quirky shops and small cafes.When you're here be sure to check out Cribs District and Prostitution Row!
