The Walls of Jerome: They are works of art and the town's most overlooked historic treasures
Fifteen-hundred retaining walls and 1,500-feet of elevation separate the house known as the Eagle's Nest at the entrance into Jerome from Prescott to its lowest residences -- a couple of twisty miles as you follow the highway through town. They are Jerome's most impressive, and sadly, most overlooked, architectural treasures.
