Search Jerome Cemetery:

Jerome Cemetery is located just south of Jerome on Hogback Ridge. It has a panoramic view of Jerome and the United Verde Mining operations. However, the cemetery is very unkempt, with many broken headstones and unmarked, fenced grave sites. It is thought that there are approximately 400 graves but there are fewer than 40 headstones. In keeping with Jerome's reputation as "the wickedest town in the west", many of those buried here died of gunshot wounds or in mining accidents. Many others were known as "ladies of the night." The cemetery is reputed to be haunted.
