43rd annual Jerome historic home tour May 17-18

[] -- Visit 8 historic homes and buildings throughout Jerome on May 17-18 from 9am-3pm as part of the 43rd Annual Jerome Home Tour. This year promises to be an exciting and interesting tour with a new look at the Phelps Dodge Administrative Office which has been beautifully restored at one end of town, down to 2 modern day ‘Jerome Style’ dream homes that have been works in progress for many years and are now ready for a first viewing.

A classic Victorian house, a 1904 cottage and authentic Gypsy Caravan, the beautiful and haunting Holy Cross Catholic Church, The Ladies Jail, and a charming 1914 home on the main road into Jerome ...this fills out a roster that gives a cross-section of Jerome then and now. End the tour with refreshments at Jerome's famous 'Spook Hall.' The piece de resistance of the tour is The Pink Lady House (pictured). The Riordan House, now referred to as The Pink Lady House because of its lovely and authentic Victorian paint scheme, was built in 1898. [Note: To read the full article, click here.]
