History & History Related Items

Sedona history:

White settlers came into the area after the Civil war. They raised fruit which was sold to the ranchers and loggers in the Flagstaff area and also to the miners in Jerome. By 1902, the area had grown much and needed a post office. T. C. Schnebly added one to his home. The government told him that Schnebly Station was too long for a postmark, so he decided on a new name - Sedona - after his wife, Sedona. The community remained small and friendly for many years. During the 1940's, Sedona was "discovered." Because of the natural scenery of the area, Hollywood began to make movies on location, particularly the popular westerns being filmed at the time. More than 60 films plus many other shows and commercials have been done in the Sedona area.

It was not only Hollywood which enjoyed the beautiful rocks and surroundings, but artists as well. Sedona has become a retreat for all types of artists - sculptors, painters, poets, writers, etc. In the 1950's, many artists were drawn by the beauty of the area, included surrealist, Max Ernst. Local artists organized the Cowboy Artists of America in Sedona in 1965. For more information, please see the Chamber of Commerce page
