I ‘m at Jordan Historical Park home to Sedona Heritage Museum. The museum is a great way to learn about Life in Sedona… starting with ... all » the pioneer families of the 1870’s through the colorful movie history of the 1940’s and 50’s. Let’s take a quick trip back in time. In 1876 J.J. Thompson and his wife Margrett were the first white settlers to establish a homestead in Oak Creek Canyon. Others followed suit as the creek and mild climate provided a natural environment for produce farms, orchards and cattle ranches. In 1902 Carl Schnebly, established the first post office naming the small hamlet after his wife Sedona. During the 1920’s Sedona was discovered by the film industry...and continuing today the beauty of Sedona is seen around the world as the dramatic Red Rocks form perfect backdrops for movies and commercials. To learn more of Sedona’s colorful history Be sure to visit Jordan Historical Park in Uptown. It’s open everyday from 11-3, except major holidays. In the early days, Oak Creek Canyon allowed the settlers to flourish. Today it’s a haven for recreation and relaxation. Let’s join Shondra.
