Douglas Mansion

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 24 January 2014 in Documentary & Street.

The mansion, now the Jerome State Historic Park, was built by James Stuart Douglas, the owner of the Little Daisy Mine, in 1916. It was the grandest house in town. At the bottom of the frame you can see an open pit and lots of mine tailings. At the left is the Audrey headframe, the largest wooden headframe still standing in Arizona. We'll look around the mansion more later.

It is a very handsome house. It seems that nature is taking theirs back.

Wow - amazing point of view to show the mansion in a world of its own surrounded by the harsh terrain of the mining.

Deep scars make for deep pockets for some, but not all:)

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan depends on taste! The owner must have enjoyed rough terrain and solitude (or being gar from the maddening crowds). The general view if stunning, the Earth shows off some of its colours.
