Visitors may have wondered about the large building on Hill Street on the way up to the Grand Hotel. The owners of the Clubhouse will open their doors for a preview of this amazing structure. Originally a hospital, in 1928 the mining company decided to create a clubhouse for employees and residents of Jerome and Clarkdale. There was a modern library, ballroom, meeting rooms, kitchen, ladies lounge and cloakroom. The building is about to be renovated into beautiful condos and guests will have a tour of the spaces before their transformation. Six more homes are on the tour including a charming small house on The Boardwalk.
The 52nd Annual Jerome Historic Home and Building Tour takes place May 20-21, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day in Jerome, Arizona.
There will be plenty of parking out at the 300 level where a bus will pick you up to bring you to town for your tickets. The Tour starts with ticket sales at Spook Hall on Hull Avenue. Adults will pay $20 and $10 for kids. Free for children under 3. There will be lots of steps so wear comfortable shoes and prepare for an adventure.
Large vans will transport guests to the first stop at The Clubhouse, once the hospital in Jerome. Two more stops are walking distance so prepare for some steps and a walk on The Boardwalk of Jerome. Then board a van to be driven to a home in The Gulch. Back in the van, you will be driven to the North/Dundee area for a look at 3 more homes, all interesting one of a kind homes. There will be live music in Spook Hall most of the day, featuring The Jerome Ukulele Orchestra, Tommy Anderson, Hank Ervin and Tom Bauer. The Tour is not handicapped accessible.
