2013 Annual Jerome Historic Home Tour this weekend - 9am to 3 pm

 Annual Jerome Historic Home Tour has an exciting line-up of homes to see this year, including the famous Honeymoon Cottage, built in 1921 by mine owner Jimmy Rawhide Douglas as a gift for his son and his new bride. Lovingly restored to its former beauty, visitors will experience the elegance of a bygone era. The home that was once the Jerome Mortuary will be shown after extensive renovation and much anticipation.
This particular home is also for sale for $2,300,000. See the detailed listing for this special property:

This longest running tour in the state of Arizona promises a look at the historic gems of this charming town including some never seen treasures that will delight visitors.  In total, 7 homes and buildings are on the tour including the Gypsy Wagon at The Hillside House.  There are lots of steps so this is not handicapped accessible and no pets or strollers allowed. The final stop at Spook Hall will include cookies and lemonade plus a photo display of historic photos as well as performances by Mingus Union High School Students.
