A Blast Back to the Past...
*************************
It is a colorful history of mining, mayhem, success stories, and failures and the beauty of the Douglas Mansion that makes Jerome State Historic Park one of the most intriguing historical tourist attractions in the state of Arizona. The interesting slant on Jerome's history is that the blasting away of rock from numerous mining activities has caused both the ground underneath the town and the buildings to shift. Jerome's famous "Sliding Jail" can still be seen hundreds of feet downhill from its original location. The town of Jerome has survived fires, floods, the Great Depression, and the decline of mining. Jerome State Historic Park and the town stand today as an inspirational reminder of the hard living, tough people, and passionate spirit that makes up the heart of the State of Arizona.
