Explore Arizona’s Mining History At This Underrated State Park

The mining industry is, in large part, what built Arizona. While most of the mines have been dry for decades, their legacy lives on all across the state. Jerome is one of the best places to explore Arizona’s rich mining history, as it’s home to Jerome State Historic Park. One of the best state parks in Arizona, it features the Douglas Mansion, a former hotel for mining executives that now serves as a museum dedicated to how the mining industry shaped this famous ghost town.

Visit the Arizona State Parks website for more information, such as park hours and entrance fees.
