Jerome – Too Stubborn To Die
Presented by Jay Mark. This presentation looks at the numerous disasters, tragedies and setbacks Jerome faced in its first 75 years, and how it still came out on top. From the time in prehistory when the Sinaguas mined copper for decoration and ornamentation, to the Spanish exploring for gold and silver, to the modern discoveries of copper riches all within Cleopatra Hill, Jerome exploded to the 4th largest city in Arizona. This event is free to the public. Museum admission required.
