Would you pay $5 to visit this ghost town? What the heck; with expectations of a hokey, bastardized and totally unrealistic ghost town we went on in.
The museum, or ghost town, or junkyard, is shared with a number of local residents. The home at the top of this photo was the nicest, must be the owners'.
One of the highlights of the tour is the antique chainsaw exhibit inside this great old barn. Don't miss the snow chain display on the north wall!
I think this whole windmill thing was contrived for the benefit 0f the museum, what the heck, it's pretty cool.
A demonstration of a 100 year old steam driven sawmill is just one of the working exhibits you may see here if you come at the right time. You can also pay extra to pan for gold, have an antique engine started up as well as other things. There is some very beautiful exotic lumber for sale here as well. Don't miss this if you come to Jerome.
