cellar, billiard room, steam heat and was built from adobe bricks made on-site.

miss the 3-D model of the underground tunnels under the town. There's a picnic
area with a panoramic view.

Winery produces their own special wines as well as carrying wines from other
areas of the world.
Gold King Mine
and Ghost Town
Don't miss the Gold
King Mine & Ghost Town. The location of the historic Gold King Mine was
originally the site of Haynes, Arizona, which in 1890, was a small suburb of
the larger town of Jerome, one mile north. When the Haynes Copper Company dug a
1200-foot-deep shaft in search of copper, they were disappointed at the absence
of copper, but miners hit gold instead. The site is now a musuem where visitors
can see continuous demonstrations of antique mining equipment and the operation
of a turn-of-the-century sawmill daily. Other highlights include walks in an
authentic mine shaft, animals to pet and feed, a circa 1901 blacksmith shop,
and the world's largest gas engines. The Museum is open daily from 9:00 a.m.
until 5:00 p.m. Facilities include rest rooms and a large parking area.
