Real Haunted House

Haunted Mining Town

Jerome, Arizona

During the turn of the century, thousands of miners flocked to this boomtown to seek fortune. After the copper mine was depleted, all but one hundred of the miners left.

Today, the community is a haven for artists, and has been designated a historical landmark.

Ghosts in the town include that of a prostitute that resides in the building now called “Spook Hall.” In the Old Episcopal Church on Cleopatra Hill, a white, misty sprit of unknown origin has been spotted on numerous occasions. In the Old Company Clinic, the ghosts of the influenza epidemic of 1917 are said to reside.

In Jerome, also, ghosts reside in the old hospital building, now the Grand Hotel, and the hotel downtown. The cribs in Husbands’ Alley are said to be haunted as well.

I went there in 1979 and took a picture (still have it) of a closed mine shaft. There is a plume of smoke coming out of it, maybe it’s a ghost? LOL

Used to live close by ~ If you ever get a chance, this is a cool place to visit. A ton of history and ghost stories. Ask on of th locals about the guillitin, or the people that were killed in the hospital that still haunt it today. Jerome was also the original state capital, it was later moved to Prescott then finally to Phoenix.

i was raised in az and my family used to travel all over the state on the weekends. jerome is my favorite town cuz it is on a mountain side, literally and has these cool old houses and buildings. i haven’t been there in 10 yrs, but the last time i was it still had that “stepping back in time” sort of feel about it, like nothing had changed since the day it was built. it is a cool little place to check out and go on a motorcycle if u can and aren’t afraid of heights on the way up. the view is amazing. some kind herb might be nice to take along 2.

I grew up in Cottonwood Az.,
And as a teenager in the 70’s we used to always go up to Jerome. Many times we experienced weird things.

I really don’t think this story is true. I just tink it’s a bunch of hooplah.I’m sorry but it’s untrue.

Yo homie, this story is crappier than my moms toilet. Yo, my can of soup moved all by itself one time, that doesn’t make it haunted. My Grammy died when she fell of her milking stool. that doesn’t mean her milkin’ stool is haunted

I stayed in the Jerome hotel on a class field trip for my TV productions class. I was skeptical at first, but we saw some creepy ****. Got a lot on tape too. Including voices, shadows casted in the dark, and movement, as well as light from restricted areas of the hotel we stayed at, which is a renovated hospital. I don;t really believe in ghosts and paranormal activity, but I can not explain what happened there, or at the abandoned school at the bottom of the mountain.

I went to Arizona for a summer a year ago and on my trip i went to jerome. It was kind of creepy feeling untill i went into the hotel and i saw something running up the stairs.. it scared me a lot. but not in a bad way. 🙂

I knew a couple of people that worked at the Grand. They acknowledged the presence the paranormal…The bartender even saw a full body ghost walking through the bar late at night…Its got a great history of bad things happening. There was something about the roof of the hospital collapsing and killing a bunch of people as well…What I wanna know is does anybody know the name of the resort in Sedona that was built on top of an Indian burial ground..I think it was Enchantment but I can’t remeber…Now that place had some freaky ghost stories…I talked to a couple of people that worked there and they didn’t want to say anything about it…There was something about a particular cabin having extra activity in it, something about the walls bleeding and hearing chants in the middle of the night…Fill me in if you know anything about it.

Of all the times I’ve been to Jerome, I’ve always wanted to stay in the old school. There are a few basketball players still playing in the gym. Because when this school was up & running, there was an away game that some students went on. But on returning home to Jerome, their bus got into an accident and lost a majority of their basketball players.

I’m Wiccan. I’ve been to Jerome. There is no evil there, just a few lost souls and they are among the living. It’s a bit of a sad place, but not haunted.

Blessed be.

My sweetie and I were in Jerome 2/2008 and stayed at the Mile High Hotel. (it used to be called something else). In the middle of the night we hear a BIG slam on the table next tot he bed. We just stayed in bed an ignored it. In the morning one water bottle was laying on it’s side and the other remained upright. This bottle did not fall over, it was definately slammed.
It is a really neat town and worth the trip from Sedona. Very unique, copper ceilings and all.

I went to jerome in 2003, i stayed at the jerome hotel, vistited the cemetary of graves from 1898-1914 all children. The hotel was built in the early 1930’s closed for 40 something years, bought by a family who through out some paint. The asylm is now the resturant, bodies were shipped down to the mine, they didnt have a morgue. The hotel runs of the switch board.
trust me the place is friggin out loud haunted. What do you say about a town that has no children schools gas stations convenient stores, travel around the corner of the mountain to were the orginal town stood, its still there!!!!! down to the dentist tools to the old dusty shoe underneath the table in the telegragh hut!!!!

I went to Jerome this past July 4th. Me and my friends walked around quite a bit. There are weird jail cell type things in the walls of the town. Most have bars but there are smaller ones that don’t. We were all too scared to go in those. Then we went to the cementary becausemy friend wanted to talk pictures. It’s out in the middle of nowhere, but we kept hearing weird voices and stuff. And in a bunch of the pictures from the cememtary there are bright spots. At one point I stopped breathing and my friend took a picture of me because it was dark and we couldn’t see. After that I was breathing fine…But in the picture I have a couple of bright spots around me as if I was standing in front of a mirror. It’s creepy as hell but it’s so much fun.

I live in Prescott,AZ and visit Jerome alot. I go to the Art gallory at the abandoned school at the bottom of the mountain. That place scares me to death. I’ve taken my mom and several friends there everytime I go. The artist there paints himself painting himself of him painting himself. And in the other building you go down stairs were the lockers are and the locker doors will swing open and slam close by them selves. And a face shows up in the window of the gym door. I have lots of pictures and video. I have not been in that school since then and dont care to.

This is a wonderful old town with lots of history, many ghost siteings. A must see if you are in the area, you can ask any of the locals and they will be glad to point you in the right direction to finding old haunts. Enjoy!!!

My Husband and I went to Jerome in 1996. I got a really creepy feeling when we were walking around the town. I really love old buildings and history but this had a negative feel to it. I finally said to my husband that I wanted to get out of there because I had a bad feeling. He said he felt the same way and as we walked to the car there was writing on a storefront window (written in the dirt,dust) that said, “Do you get the feeling someone is watching you?” That was all we needed and I will never go back there again!

my father used to work in the Budge mine the was over looked by the company clinic, he worked night shift, and worked under ground. He was trying to break through where the copper mine collapsed. He was the last one out of the mine and he would tell me stories of people (spirits) from Fillups Dodge company would wave to him from the bouquinie from the back of the hospital, he said that he would never go back to that mine. He says that he would see spirits of mines under ground that died down there.
