Jerome Junction is a ghost town in Yavapai County, Arizona, United States. Established in 1894, the community served as a railroad transfer stop between the town of Prescott and the town of Jerome. It served as a transfer point between the Santa Fe, Prescott and Phoenix Railway (SFP&P) and the narrow-gauge United Verde & Pacific Railway for 25 years. The narrow-gauge line was built precariously on the side of Woodchute Mountain by William A. Clark after he bought the United Verde Copper Company. When it was replaced by standard-gauge line on the east side of the mountain from Jerome to Clarkdale in 1920, Jerome Junction became a ghost town, and in 1923, the activities of the former town were absorbed by Chino Valley.
The location changed names at least 3 times:
* 1895 June 7 — "Junction" post office
* 1914 December 23 — Jerome Junction, railway depot and transfer station
* 1923 April 11 — Copper Siding, Chino Valley, railroad stop
All that remains today are some foundations and railroad equipment. Wikimap Google map
