Jerome sits on top of Cleopatra Hill between Prescott and Flagstaff Arizona and is nicknamed the wickedest town in the West. The United Verde Hospital was built in 1926, opening in January of 1927, and was shut down in 1950. In 1993 Larry Altherr purchased the old hospital and started operating it as the Jerome Grand hotel in 1996. To this day, The Jerome Grand Hotel in Jerome, Arizona is said to be one of the most haunted buildings in the state.
