Wicked City Chronicle

Welcome to the Wicked City, Jerome Arizona

Filled with saloons, gambling dens, and bawdy houses, Jerome had a reputation as a rough and rowdy town. That reputation gained national notoriety on February 5, 1903, when the New York Sun proclaimed Jerome to be “The wickedest town in the West.”
