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.
I’ve been to Jerome and wish to visit again. It’s such a unique and interesting little place!
It certainly is a unique little town. Thanks, Shannon!
Great shot and processing!!
Thank you, Santi!
I think I remember seeing that little town from a distance. Is it anywhere near Sedona?
Yes, it is not too far from Sedona — about 30 miles southwest. Thanks!
Great shot and thanks for the memory. My parents took me to Jerome as a kid on there rock hunting expeditions to get interesting minerals from the mind 🙂
Thanks for the feedback, Carol!
Absolutely love the shot and the colors 🙂
Rasha, thank you so much!
Now that’s something I’d hang on my wall 🙂
Thank you, Norma!
