5 Truly Terrifying Ghost Stories That Prove Jerome Is The Most Haunted City In Arizona
If you ask anyone in Arizona the location of the spookiest town, chances are they will point you towards Jerome. The old mining town certainly looks like it could be haunted with its winding streets, weathered buildings, and other areas of the town slowly decaying.
Given that Halloween is just around the corner, now is as good a time as ever to hear a few ghost stories. Today, we’re going to focus on stories that originate from Arizona’s Ghost City that may cause the hairs on the back of your neck to rise. Enjoy!
