Jerome will not be having The 55th Annual Historic Home and Building Tour in May of 2021 due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. This is the longest running home tour in the state of Arizona. We draw approximately 1500 people in two days for the wonderful celebration of historic and unique homes in the mile-high town. This tour is the major fundraiser for the Jerome Chamber of Commerce. The weekend requires homeowners to open their homes plus the help of 70 volunteers to accomplish the exciting event. Enjoy this look back at some great homes from the past tours. We look forward to seeing you in 2022! To see the past virtual tour visit Jerome Virtual Home Tour. Also, explore the web site to read more about the shops, galleries, restaurants, bars, wine tasting rooms and activities that make Jerome one of Arizona’s favorite destinations.

History of Jerome

Jerome was built on Cleopatra Hill above a vast deposit of copper. Prehistoric Native Americans were the first miners, seeking colored stones.

The Spanish followed, seeking gold but finding copper.

Anglos staked the first claims in the area in 1876, and United Verde mining operations began in 1883, followed by the Little Daisy claim. Jerome grew rapidly from tent city to prosperous company town as it followed the swing of the mine’s fortunes. Read more…
