Main Street (which is also Highway 89) houses the Mine Museum sponsored by the Jerome Historical Society, and a variety of novelty and antique shops run by the live "ghosts" who refuse to leave this best preserved and most fascinating ghost town in Arizona.

Little Daisy Hotel

This hotel was closed and deserted in 1938 when the mining operations closed.  it was built before 1920 with 40 double rooms, and was used by the copper mine employees.
