Take A Ghost Walk Through Jerome, The Most Haunted Small Town In Arizona
October is almost upon us, which means it’s time to start planning out your Halloween attraction itinerary for the month. There are so many festivities to choose from here in Arizona, but our plethora of ghost towns would be a good place to start.
Jerome, a washed-up mining community with less than 500 residents, is a notoriously haunted destination whose history is one of abandonment and tragedy. Jerome Ghost Town Tours takes you to the most paranormally active spots and even provides ghost hunting equipment.
Jerome is one of the country’s most famed haunted destinations, despite having a population of fewer than 500. Despite how quiet the city is today, its roots are steeped in the perilous mining industry — meaning a fair amount of gruesome deaths have taken place here.
While much of the town is unrecognizable after so many years, certain aspects haven't changed a bit. These buildings still harbor tales from beyond the grave and Jerome Ghost Town Tours reveals these coveted secrets.
Centrally located on Main Street, the office is just minutes away from all of Jerome's most infamous attractions. Don't be surprised if a few ghoulish greeters are awaiting your arrival, eager to show off their favorite haunting spots.
Four different tours each offer a unique perspective of the city. Whether your primary interest lies in urban legends or true historical accounts explaining why Jerome is so paranormally charged, rest-assured nobody leaves disappointed.
Among the locations you'll see is Jerome Grand Hotel, which served as a hospital for many years. Patients died left and right (more than 9,000, to be exact), many of whom have yet to be discharged. Overnight guests have reported everything from the sound of a baby crying to a spectral cat wandering the halls.
Pay a visit to the Old Miners Cemetery, which dates back to somewhere around 1900. Hundreds of workers who met tragic deaths lie beneath these very grounds, and it is rumored that vengeful spirits lurk about after dark.
Each participant will receive an EMF meter to ensure no otherworldly energy goes unnoticed. Choose the Jerome Ghost Adventure package and you can also use EVP equipment to pick up disembodied voices.
You might need a drink after all the unrelenting adrenaline, so luckily, the tour makes a pit stop at Spirit Room. This quirky bar, situated directly beneath the historic Hotel Connor, pays homage to the Old West and celebrates Halloween all year long. It's a fun time for all, guaranteed to wipe away any bad memories of the horrifying few hours that just transpired — until you close your eyes, that is.
