Artist's Description

“I NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF THE FACT
THAT JUST BEING,
CAN ALSO BE FUN”

Katharine Hepburn

We saw this in the old town of Jerome, Arizona, USA

Nellie Bly was a pioneer for women in journalism. Nellie Bly was the penname of Elizabeth Cochrane.
She was born in Pennsylvania in 1864 . She died in New York at 55 from pneumonia. But in her lifetime became famous as a feminist, journalist, industrialist, humanitarian and a celebrity when she had herself committed to a mental asylum to expose the condition there.

Then in 1890 she also went around the world in 72 days to prove she could do it better than Jules Verne’s book that did it in 80 days. When she was 30 she married an 80 year old man who was an industrialist and took over his business when he died. She invented the idea of investigative reporting and also worked under-cover to get many of her stories she wrote for the Pittsburgh Newspaper which was her first journalist job.

The movie “the Great Race” was based on her career and continued her legend. To read more about this fascinating woman be sure to go to Wikipedia at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nellie_Bly

The historic mining town of Jerome lies 100 miles north of Phoenix in the Black Hills overlooking the beautiful Verde Valley. It is centrally located, just a half hour drive from Sedona and 45 minutes from Prescott. View Jerome on a map here.

Jerome was established as a copper and silver mining camp in 1883 and quickly grew in reputation and size. Just 20 years later, Jerome was labeled “the wickedest town in the State” by the New York Sun. Perhaps it was this proclamation that led to the rapid growth of Jerome, reaching its peak in the 1920’s at 15,000 residents. When Jerome’s mines closed in the early 50’s, it became a ghost town in just a few years. By the end of the decade, Jerome’s population was down to around 50 residents.

Today, Jerome has approximately 400 residents and is a National Historic Landmark. It’s once abandoned streets contain a diverse mixture of restaurants, retail stores, and renovated hotels while still retaining the architecture and beautiful Arizona landscape that made it famous.
