Plans are under way for the 48th Annual Jerome Historic Home and Building Tour on May 18-19.

This longest running tour in the state of Arizona promises a look at the historic gems of this charming town including some never seen treasures that will delight visitors.

Tickets will be sold on Main Street, right in the center of town at the old firehouse. The cost is $15 for adults and $8 for children.

The first tickets are sold at 9 a.m. and the final tickets each day will be sold at 3 p.m., leaving two hours for latecomers to get through the tour by 5 p.m.

This year, the spectacular Honeymoon Cottage will be on tour. Built in 1921 by mine owner Jimmy Rawhide Douglas as a wedding gift for his son Lewis and his bride, this 'grand dame' is the crowning jewel of Jerome.

Lovingly restored to its former beauty, visitors will experience the elegance of a bygone era. The home that was once the Jerome Mortuary will be shown after extensive renovation and much anticipation.

A private retreat that was rebuilt after a devastating fire and sits on East Avenue with huge Verde Valley views will offer a look into how true Jeromans live in this quirky mile high town. And after many years, The Powder Box Church will be open a part of the tour. This private residence is one of the iconic homes on the steep hillside of Jerome.

In total, seven homes and buildings are on the tour including the Gypsy Wagon at The Hillside House.

There are lots of steps so this is not handicapped accessible and no pets or strollers allowed.

The final stop at Spook Hall will include cookies and lemonade plus a photo display of historic photos as well as performances by Mingus Union High School Students.

As a bonus, there will be a preview of a film by local historian Peggy Hicks, recounting the story of The Cuban Queen.

This yearly event is a highlight of springtime in Northern Arizona and draws people from not only the Phoenix area but all over the country.
