Jerome Paint Out

Founded in 1876, Jerome was once the fourth largest city in the Arizona Territory. The population peaked at 15,000 in the 1920’s. The Depression of the 1930’s slowed the mining operation and the claim went to Phelps Dodge, who holds the claim today. World War II brought increased demand for copper, but after the war, demand slowed. Dependent on the copper market, Phelps Dodge Mine closed in 1953. The remaining 50 to 100 hardy souls promoted the town as a historic ghost town. In 1967 Jerome was designated a National Historic District by the federal government. Today Jerome is a thriving tourist and artist community with a population of about 450.

The range, deeply serrated with ridges and canyons, rises sharply from its base to peak at over 4,000 feet. Infrequent heavy rains cause flash floodwaters to plunge through the canyons and pour onto the plain. These torrential flows, pouring down chutes and dropping off ledges, have scoured out a series of depressions, or tanks, in the white granite rock below, thus giving the mountains their name.

Arizona Plein Air Painters . . . This is a great opportunity to paint some southwest mission style architecture! We have permission to paint in certain places around the church. One, the far southeast corner of the parking lot, where this photo was taken, in the courtyard, or west of the church. Please, bring a tarp if you want to paint in the courtyard. Don't go early. There is a school on campus and they don't want anyone there until the children are gone. Besides, the traffic when school is released is chaotic, from what I was told. Hope to see you there!
