At 5,200 feet, Jerome has quite the history, and what appeared as a thriving tourist industry the Saturday afternoon our family drove up there on a windy Arizona road. It was founded in 1876, incorporated in 1899, and has a history as a copper mining camp that grew from a settlement of tents to a roaring town.
Stories of fires and lingering ghosts pepper its history. Colourful art blankets its streets now.
One of my favourite pieces of art from the whole town. So colourful.Gorgeous table inlaid with turquoise and a touch of copper in the crevices.Butterfly bench but you’ll burn your butt in this heatToveli is a bit worried
Going inside these art stores with a 5 year old with a short fuse and the wiggles was a bit daunting when prices of art pieces go into the thousands of dollars, but he is fascinated by the shine, the colours, the textures (that’s the clincher, wanting to touch everything).
Lisa O, fudge got me again, but I shared it with my family and there was even some left for the next day to have with a Starbucks in Flagstaff!
