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.

Amanda, Yes, it's an easy and quite scenic drive. Its about 20-35-min drive, depending on where in Sedona you're leaving from. The roads are steep, but are in great shape. Once in Jerome, many of the roads are narrow and... More
