written history

written history of the area finds it occupied by the Yavapai people. Spanish explorer Antonio de Espejo passed through what is now Cornville on May 7 or 8, 1583 on his way to what would later become Jerome, Arizona. The Yavapai were quite friendly with the explorers, apparently regarding them as supernatural or godlike. Later expeditions over the next 25 years entered the region but with increasing hostility from the native American peoples which may stem in part from the advent of the Apache and Navajo people in the region. Failure to find mineral resources profitably extractable according to the standards of the day, and the distance from other Spanish settlements caused the Spaniards to cease exploration of the area. Byrkit, 1984, p. 1. By the time the Mountain Men began to arrive in the late 1820s and settlers began to arrive again in the 1860s the people of the Cornville area were a mixed community of Apache (Dil-ze'e) and Yavapai (Wipukepaya), though the Apache are thought to have been more numerous on the east side of the Verde River. The area that is now lower Oak Creek was more or less on the border of the area occupied by the Dil-ze'e Chein-chii-ii (or Red Rock Clan) and Yaa-go-gain (White Land Clan) Ruland-Thorne, 1993. pp. 11-12. The US army gathered the Yavapai and Apache people in the area and in 1875 removed them in a tragic and brutal march and exile to the San Carlos Reservation in Eastern Arizona, but many Dilze'e remained in hiding in the Lower Oak Creek and adjoining White Hills area Simmons, 1983. p. 75. As late as 1876, numerous Dil-ze'e still lived on or near Lower Oak Creek. Dumas, 1975, p. 188. Relations between settlers and indigenous peoples in the Verde Valley were essentially peaceful from that point on and with the rapid increase in settlers along Oak Creek, although there were "Indian scares" into the 1880s mostly in connection with conflicts elswhere: In the words of settler W. A. Jordan, in about 1880 "The settlers were in no danger from this band of hunters that he had just met between Clarkdale and Cornville , but they were so wrought up over the stories of massacres and murders that the Indians themselves were in the greatest danger." Jordan, 1954, pp.101-102. There was resistance among part though not all of the settler population to ending the prohibition on the return or the Dil-ze'e and Yavapai from San Carlos. Most remaining or Dil-ze'e and Yavapai lost hope of abiding peacefully and unmolested amidst increasing numbers of settlers and left to join returnees from the San Carlos Reservation in nearby communities in Camp Verde and Clarkdale. They did continue for many years to hunt throughout the valley and to gather food in the traditional ways Coder, Randall, Smith-Roca & Hines '''Mingus Mountain''' is a mountain located in the U.S. (United States) state of Arizona in the Black Hills (Black Hills (Arizona)) mountain range.

Jensen has asserted that the IWW had a "rule or ruin" policy, under which it attempted to wreck local unions which it could not control. From 1908 to 1921, Jensen and others have written, the IWW attempted to win power in WFM locals which had once formed the federation's backbone. When it could not do so, IWW agitators undermined WFM locals


century version

: www.census.gov prod www decennial.html title Census of Population and Housing author United States Census Bureau accessdate October 2, 2013 2013 Estimate thumb left A cafe in Jerome (File:Red Rooster Jerome Ariozna.JPG) The makeup of early Jerome differed greatly from the 21st-century version of the town. The original mining claims were filed by Whites (Race and ethnicity in the United States Census), but as the mines were developed, workers of many nationalities arrived. Among these were people of Irish, Chinese, Italian, and Slavic origin who came to Jerome in the late 19th century. By the time of World War I, Mexican nationals were arriving in large numbers, and census figures suggest that in 1930 about 60 percent of the town's residents were Latino (Race (United States Census)). Clements, pp. 59–60 This statistic is supported by mining company records showing that about 57 percent of the UVX workers were Mexican nationals in 1931 and that foreign-born and Spanish-surnamed workers accounted for about 77 percent of the UVX work force. Clements, p. 149 The ratio of females to males also varied greatly over time in Jerome. Census data from 1900 through 1950 show a gradual rise in the percentage of female residents, who accounted for only 22 percent of the population at the turn of the century but about 50 percent by mid-century. Clements, p. 153 As of the census of 2000, there were 329 people, 182 households, and 84 families residing in the town. The population density was 462.1 people per square mile (178.9 km²). There were 215 housing units at an average density of 302.0 per square mile (116.9 km²). The racial makeup of the town was 91.79% White, 0.30% Black (Race (United States Census)) or African American (Race (United States Census)), 2.43% Native American (Race (United States Census)), 0.30% Asian (Race (United States Census)), 2.13% from other races, and 3.04% from two or more races. 8.21% of the population were Hispanic (Race (United States Census)) or Latino of any race.

Jerome, Arizona

'''Jerome''' is a town in the Black Hills (Black Hills (Yavapai County)) of Yavapai County (Yavapai County, Arizona) in the State (U.S. state) of Arizona. Founded in the late 19th century on Cleopatra Hill overlooking the Verde Valley, it is more than north of Phoenix (Phoenix, Arizona) along State Route 89A (Arizona State Route 89A) between Sedona (Sedona, Arizona) and Prescott (Prescott, Arizona). Supported in its heyday by rich copper mines, it was home to more than 10,000 people in the 1920s. As of the 2010 census (2010 United States Census), its population was 444.

The town owes its existence mainly to two ore bodies that formed about 1.75 billion years ago along a ring fault (Fault (geology)) in the caldera of an undersea volcano. Tectonic plate movements, plate collisions, uplift (Tectonic uplift), deposition, erosion, and other geologic processes eventually exposed the tip of one of the ore bodies and pushed the other close to the surface, both near Jerome. In the late 19th century, the United Verde Mine, developed by William A. Clark, extracted ore bearing copper, gold, silver, and other metals from the larger of the two. The United Verde Extension (UVX) Mine, owned by James Douglas, Jr., depended on the other huge deposit. In total, the copper deposits discovered in the vicinity of Jerome were among the richest ever found in any time or place.

Jerome made news in 1917, when strikes involving the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) led to the expulsion at gunpoint of about 60 IWW members, who were loaded on a cattle car and shipped west. Production at the mines, always subject to fluctuations for various reasons, boomed during World War I, fell thereafter, rose again, then fell again during and after the Great Depression. As the ore deposits became exhausted, the mines closed, and the population dwindled to fewer than 100 by the mid-1950s. Efforts to save the town from oblivion succeeded when residents turned to tourism and retail sales. Jerome became a National Historic Landmark in 1967. In the early 21st century, Jerome has art galleries, coffee houses, restaurants, wineries, and a state park and local museum devoted to mining history.
