Given that Jerome was literally built atop a mine, it should come as no surprise that there is a mining museum along the main drag of the town.
It’s not a very large museum but they did manage to capture the essence of the town with the history of the area as well as the pleasures offered to the predominately bachelor community.
Saloons were obviously big, but so was gambling. Sorry, it seems I didn’t capture the whole diorama with the roulette wheel, card table, etc.
Obviously from one of the more upscale pleasure houses rather than the cribs.
Of course, most of the museum was devoted to mining and this stretcher for recovery of victims of accidents. I believe this to be from later in the life of the mine. The big wooden box at the back was where the stretcher was stored until needed.
Once you stepped outside the museum this was the view. It was pretty much the same on every street. Apparently those mountains are 100 miles away.
Below left, is the cement factory still in business today. At night it looks like a city, complete with skyscrapers.
Until next time.
