This Creepy Ghost Town In Arizona Is The Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of

OK, I admit that title is a bit of a stretch—but the place we’re talking about today is still pretty creepy. In a state that receives a record amount of sunshine, it can be difficult to find places particularly scary since the “dark and stormy night” scenarios rarely occur here. However, if there is any place in the state that routinely receives a reputation for being haunted and offering some visitors more than they bargained for during their stay, that location would have to be Jerome.

So, have you visited Jerome before? What was your experience like? Let me know if you think Jerome should still be considered a ghost town and whether or not it is creepy.
