Jerome State Historic Park
Tel: +1 928 634 5381
Jerome's modern history began in 1876 when three prospectors staked claims on rich copper
deposits. They sold out to a group which formed the United Verde Copper Company in 1883.
The resultant mining camp of board and canvas shacks was named in honor of Eugene Jerome,
the venture's principal backer. Hopes for the enterprise ran high, but the costs of
operating, especially for transportation, outstripped profits, and the company folded in
less than two years.It took the vision and vast financial resources of a new owner,
William A. Clark, to bring in a narrow gauge railroad and reduce freighting costs. By the
early 20th century, the United Verde was the largest producing copper mine in the Arizona
Territory. Jerome was becoming a frame and brick town, and could boast two churches, an
opera house, a school and several civic buildings.

Built around 1890 as a boarding house for middle mine management, this building has seen
many uses. Although most of it's life has been spent as a boarding house, the building
served as an ashram as well as a restaurant in prior years.The building went through a
major restoration project in 1994, and the current owners have renovated all the rooms in
the last three years. From the Victorian elegance of the Verde View Room to the rustic
feel of a northwoods cabin in the Northern Exposure Room the owners have made each room
special and inviting. The building still carries some of the uneven floors and original
beadboard cielings.We have been featured on Sanoran Living Television, the Fox 10 Morning
Show, Arizona TV 3 as well as the Boston Globe, Miami Herald, Inn Traveler, the Arizona
Republic and many, many more!
