Jerome, Arizona, was founded in 1883 on the side of Cleopatra Hill. The town was incorporated in 1889. It was a mining town for copper, gold and silver for over 70 years. In 1929 the population reached over 15,000. By the 1950's the population reached a low of about 50 people. Now the town is a tourist destination, that is why Emily and I went here. It has over 30 art galleries of various artist and types, jewelry mostly. Here are a few pictures of our visit to this old cowboy mining town.
