America’s Most Vertical City and Largest Ghost Town in America

The historic copper mining town of Jerome, Arizona is located on Cleopatra Hill between Flagstaff and Prescott. Beginning as a settlement of tents the once “wickedest town in the west” grew to a roaring mining community founded in 1876. Early in its history, four fires destroyed large sections of the town, resulting in its incorporation as the City of Jerome in 1899.

Jerome was once the fourth largest city in the Arizona Territory. During the Depression, the mining operation slowed and the claim went to Phelps Dodge, who holds the claim to this day. The demand for copper decreased dramatically after World War II and the Phelps Dodge Mine closed in 1953. Those that stayed behind began promoting Jerome as a historic ghost town. Jerome was designated a National Historic District by the federal government in 1967.

Today, Jerome is a thriving artistic community consisting of artists, musicians, writers, etc. The historic town is home to galleries, museums, gift shops, restaurants, bars, and many other places of interest.

Centrally located, Jerome is a fascinating stop for photographers, history buffs, and anyone who would enjoy the unique character that it offers.




Grand Canyon
Northwestern Arizona’s Grand Canyon is 277 miles long, at some areas is 18 miles wide and over 5000 feet deep. The canyon is an awesome thing to behold with its mesas, valleys and buttes.

The Grand Canyon was created mostly by the cutting of the Colorado River through an arid plateau region beginning about 6 million years ago. Old lava flows and hills formed by volcanic debris can be found within the canyon. Vegetation is sparse and consists mostly of desert plants. Agave, Spanish Bayonet, and evergreens like Juniper and Piñon Pines are scattered throughout the area.
