HistoryBuilt in 1917 for Jerome's Chief Surgeon, this home has been on the National Historic Registry since 1966, and has a rich history.
Surgeon's House in Jerome, Arizona The property, on Hill Street in Jerome was originally the George W. Hull Homestead Tract. Mr. Hull was far-sighted and industrious, and obtained what became the town site of Jerome, Arizona and much of the surrounding mineral rights. When major companies wanted his interests, his price was one million dollars. The United Verde Copper Company paid it.
On the site the Company built a new hospital and a virtual mansion for their Head Physician to live in. Arthur Kelly, noted Los Angeles architect, designed both with arched windows, gleaming stucco, and rich red tile roofs. All the modern comforts were included.
Used for years as the nurses' residence, in the early 1930's the house became home of the then Chief Surgeon, Dr. Arthur Carlson, and his family. Decorated with the finest, it became a warm and hospitable home. Parties were held to create a diversion for the Company's upper echelon from the hard work in this hard rock mining town.
After the closing of the mine in 1953, the house became home for the Company's agent, and later, other Jerome community members. Councilmen, mayors, merchants, geologists, policemen, even the local Jerome postmaster, all enjoyed the simple elegance of this house.
The house fell into disrepair over the years, but has now been lovingly restored to its former beauty. Andrea has located and exposed the core, the very essence of the integrity of this historic house. The gardens, unique rooms and decks, rich wood floors, and the chauffeur's quarters have all have been beautifully restored. So come and stay with us and become an ongoing part of history. As a poet once said, "History is a pattern of timeless moments." Experience that timelessness with us.
