Artistic Jerome

Once a thriving copper mining town turned ghost town, Jerome Arizona sits 5,200 feet high, traversed by a heart-thumping two lane road.  In days gone by, Jerome was a hotbed of commerce, prostitution, gambling and vice,  prompting the New York Sun in 1903 to herald Jerome as the “wickedest town in the West.”

Today, Jerome has transformed its aesthetic beauty into a thriving arts community of approximately 400 residents.

With the help of Corel, here is my rendering of the unique community.
