Just down the road from the beautiful Sedona is the town of Jerome. What was once the largest copper mine in Arizona producing a massive 3 million pounds of copper per month. People from all over flocked to Jerome in search of work and the town had a population of over 10,000 in the 1920’s. It has now become the largest ghost town in America.
The town sits high atop Cleopatra Hill at 5,000 feet above sea level with amazing views of the surrounding area including the red rocks of Sedona. The town is considered haunted and has several establishments such as the Historic Jerome Grand Hotel. Once a hospital, the building stood unused and empty for 44 years before being turned into a hotel. The Community Center is considered haunted by the locals due to the odd happenings in the facility as well as the Inn at Jerome which is located on Main Street, once a brothel and home to Madam Jennie Banter, the wealthiest woman in town during her time.
