Jerome was built on the most level spot on Cleopatra Hill. In 1900, Jerome was the fourth-largest city in the Arizona Territory. It was Arizona's most famous copper town.
|In 1894, after a severe fire, the mine, which had been producing an astonishing 3 million pounds of copper per month, could no longer be worked by underground methods and a change to open pit mining took place.|
|When the mines closed, Jerome's population of 15,000 dwindled to just a few hardy souls.|
|The town has since been reborn as a thriving mecca for artists, retirees and tourists.|
