Exploding with rich history Jerome tells a story that helped shape the modern world. The United Verde Copper Company was the largest producer of copper in the world at its peak production during the World Wars, making Jerome instrumental in the development of the country’s lighting and warfare. The United Verde Copper Company was owned by the copper king William A. Clark a powerful, influential, ruthless 19th century American robber baron. At the time of his death, in 1925, he had acquired a net worth of 150 million dollars, the equivalent of 2.2 billion today. His peers would include JP Morgan and John D Rockefeller. 

 

Jerome captivated the minds of entrepreneurs looking to strike it rich and rebel outlaws alike. One such rebel was Billy the Kid a young outlaw who earned his ranks before the age of 21 and inspired the movie Young Guns portrayed by Emilio Estevez. Over run with miners, boozes, gambling and riches the ladies of Jerome took a piece of the pie as well. Home to more brothels per capita than anywhere else in the country, Jerome made its mark for more than just copper and gold. Folks, this is the real wild wild west where the law could be disputed with a sleight of hand hand and 6 shooter. 

 

 

                            We welcome your visit to Jerome and look forward to sharing some western thrills and ghost chills, so get on that dusty trail and book a tour online!

Trip Advisor Review! " The tour was far more interesting than I thought it would be. My tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about the town. "

Fun Fact #1 - In 1895 the owner (William A Clark) of the United Verde Copper Company began to net $1 million dollars a month! ( equivalent to $28 million in todays value) $1 million is a lot of today! Imagine making $1 million every single month in the year 1895!!!

Fun Fact #2 – The peak for the United Verde Copper Company was during WWI, 1914-1918 rendering the mine the largest copper producer in the U.S.A. If William A Clark was netting $1 million a month in 1895, how much was he netting during the peak years? Care to take a guess? A correct answer yields you a 1 ounce bar of copper on your tour!

Trip Advisor Review -" This was not our first time to Jerome but let me say WE LEARNED SO MUCH! We had so much fun walking around Jerome and honestly seeing places that we had never noticed or walked right by in the past. Our tour guide went above and beyond to show us around town and point out items that peaked our interest. 10/10 would recommend to those new to Jerome or if you are a repeat visitor."

Fun Fact #1 - At one point Jerome had 20 saloons, 80 active bordellos and 19 opium dens! One such opium den was below one of the current restaurants in town.

Fun Fact #2 – Once a month the owner of the United Verde Copper Company William A. Clark would grant his employees a credit to the red light district. In addition, he would hand out credits to the opium dens. Perks of the job? Not so much… These tactics were to keep disgruntled employees at bay. Miners would rise up and demand more pay due to poor wages and dangerous work enviornments considering 5-7 people a day would perish in the mines. His solution was the ultimate high of opium and the persuasive power of female company. William was behind the opium supply and wholesale credits to the Red Light District making him in some aspects a drug dealer and pimp.

Hey! Jerome Ghost Tours is the only tour company granted access to the Haskins House!

Fun Fact #1 - Below the surface of Jerome lies 80 miles of mine shafts that span the entire length of the town like a web. During probation miners used these shafts to transport alcohol, opium and other contraband. Some residents would dig tunnels from the closets of their home to the mine shafts. The Haskins House has tunnels in the closets that run to the big mine shafts below town.

Fun Fact #2 The Haskins House was converted into the Haskins Apartments. On this tour you will enter two units. In the first unit a double homicide took place in the late 1920’s. Upon visiting we have had voices communicate through on our spirits boxes and told us they are in fact the victims from the double homicide. Book a tour and say hello to Robert and Charlotte! In the 2nd unit a mother drowned her three children in the tub in 1935. All three kids come through the spirit boxes and told us they were drowned by their mother. The oldest of the three David who is 10 years old likes to talk the most.

Exclusive Locations – Jerome Ghost Tours is the #1 pick among locals and tourists as we are the only tour company to hold contracts to exclusive locations that can’t be visited otherwise. 

 

Haskins House – Built in 1888 as a miners lodge, it later became known as the Haskins Apartments when the house was converted into separate units. During the mining era, residents would dig tunnels from the closets of the Haskins and connect them to the 80 miles of mines shafts that hide underneath Jerome’s surface interweaving like a network of shafts that expand the entire length of the town. These collapsed tunnels can be seen on this tour during the ghost hunt. We will enter two units. The first unit we visit a double homicide took place. Robbers came through the mine shaft into the tunnel that gave them access to the unit and forced their way in and robbed and shot and killed the couple know to have been selling opium. Spirits have come through the Spirit Boxes and communicated that they are in fact the victims from that homicide. The second unit we enter a mother drowned 3 of her children in the tub during the 1930’s. All 3 children have come through the spirits boxes. The young girl named Ruby speaks to us through the spirit box and verified that all 3 children were drowned by her mother during her cries for help.  

 

High School Auditorium – During the spanish flu of 1918 the high school was used as an auxiliary hospital. We have 11 names that we currently speak with there through the spirit boxes. The auditorium is noted to be one of the scariest places in Jerome. Don’t take our word for it. We have encountered dark entities displaying demonic like characteristics in the boiler room below in the basement. We discovered the boiler room was used as a playground for satanic worship during the 1980’s when the auditorium was abandoned. Customers have seen glowing red eyes, heard unworldly growling, smells of sulfur, cold winds, spirits screaming and experienced shortness of breath, dizzy spells, nauseous feeling, unexplained scratches or welts on their body. Enter at your own risk.

 

Jerome Cemetery – In the book Rich Town Poor Town by Jerome local Roberto the discrepancy in regards to the amount of graves vs deaths leaves a puzzling question to where all the bodies went. Talks of bodies being thrown into the mining smelter have taken root. We have communicated with many spirits of Jerome’s past at the cemetery. One such spirit, a little boy named Bruno who’s headstone sits upright and visited often is one of the more talkative of souls roaming around the cemetery. Black shadows have been seen by locals and guests alike roaming through the cemetery at night. Voices of those who cry out for help are a common occurrence. Most common words ” help ” ” stay ” ” don’t go “

Hey! Jerome Ghost Tours is the only tour company with exclusive rights to the Haskins House, Old Jerome High School and Auditorium!

Google Review - The Auditorium is the scariest place in Jerome! The Jerome Cemetery is also on this tour!

Google Review – “OMG the best ghost tour I have ever been on. We got EMF readings at all locations. A voice came through at the old hospital site. We had positive interaction using a REM pod at a old apartment. Best of all I got a picture of a ghost at the old high school. It was pitch black except for our flashlights, I must have taken 200 pictures with my cell phone. We did not see anything while there but found this picture after while reviewing the pictures I had taken. It is unmistakably a man wearing what appears to be a cowboy hat. Next time in Jerome I am going back for this tour again!”
