Jerome, AZ

"The Wickedest Town In The West."

Jerome is a historic mining town located between Prescott and Flagstaff, Arizona. Its perched on top of a VERY steep hill with old homes literally (ha) falling down the cliffs.

The best way to describe it would be "quirky."

What once was a thriving little town complete with a "postituition row" and an old insane asylum that is now a hotel/restaurant has become home to many artists and probably even a few ghosts.

Looking into what I think was the entrance of an old hotel.

Throughout the town you'll find abandoned old builidings right next to colorful Victorian homes. Very strange.

I just loved the colors and textures of this old building. Especially the rust.

Thrifty's ice cream cones. The perfect end to a hot Arizona day.
