    Husband's Alley Plaque

    Favorite thing: The Jerome Historical Society put a lot of time, effort, and money into installing historic plaques at all points of interest in town. Here is one of them.

    Fondest memory: Having a drink in Paul & Jerry's Saloon and talking with Jerry (although Cheryl at the Haunted Hamburger was cuter).

    The Connor Hotel

    The Connor Hotel

    Favorite thing: This unique building perched on the corner of main street is the Connor Hotel , which has been operating since 1898. According to information provided by its website, it offers twelve historic rooms that have been renovated 'to the highest standards of comfort and convenience".

    I read that rooms range from $90 to $165 and include a private bathroom, coffeemaker, microwave, mini-fridge, television and telephone. Wireless internet connection is available for those with laptops.

    A hotel shop is located in the lobby of this historic hotel. Call 1-800-523-3554 for more information or visit the hotels website at www.connorhotel.com.

    Once a Wayward Town

    A Historical Designation

    Favorite thing: By all accounts, Jerome had all the feistiness of a wild west town. A plaque says it was 'the wickedest town around', so I guess it's no surprise that it had a brothel or two within the town limits. One account says '100 brothels'.

    The Old Sullivan Hotel was built by saloonkeeper and madam, Jennie Bauters in 1899. This was part of the 'red light district' when it occupied Main Street. Concerned citizens removed the 'district' to another part of town later.

    The building currently houses two shops: Nelly Bly (kaleidoscopes & collectibles) and Nelly Bly 2 (a jewelry store).

    Eating, Shopping & Music in the Streets...

    by shrimp56 Updated Oct 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: Wandering the street [there's really only one that switches back on the hillside!] of Jerome on a Saturday afternoon, hearing the live music pouring out of the bars as well as the local town hall -- and the children dancing outside on the sidewalks.
    .
    There are lots of shops from the kitschy to the fine, but my main memory of Jerome will be the music [and that hill!]
    .
    Note the old car in the picture! The tan building on the right has the word "liberty" in large letters.

    A Semi-Ghost Town

    Jerome in winter

    Favorite thing: The closure of the copper mines made Jerome into a quiet town which has maintained a living community and still has the atmosphere of the old West.

    Favorite thing: This is view from the bus we were travelling in. It is of a slope near the mining town of Jerome ( copper mine closed down for a long time now. )

    Fondest memory: The great scenery
