The group will depart, caravan style, promptly at 9:30am and head North up Interstate 17 to Jerome, AZ through Prescott Valley, with a stop for fuel and a restroom break at the Shell station on the east side of the Cordes Junction exit (262). From there, we will continue up to the Mile High Grill, via AZ-89A.
Located high on top of Cleopatra Hill (5,200 feet) between Prescott and Flagstaff is the historic copper mining town of Jerome, Arizona. Once known as the wickedest town in the west, Jerome was a copper mining camp, growing from a settlement of tents to a roaring mining community.
Built in 1899, the Clinkscale Building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. (Jerome Historic District, 66000196). These walls have seen it all. Undertakers, madams, a candy store and even a ghost kitty have all resided here at one point or another.
