GEOGRAPHY

The red rocks of Sedona were formed about 500 million years ago and the land alternated between ocean and plain. Sedimentary layers of sandstone formed. There were sand storms and wind storms and volcanic activity. Roughly 300 million years ago the Colorado Plateau uplifted. Oak Creek Canyon was created by the weather and the layers of sediment were exposed.

NATIVE AMERICANS

It is believed the Paleo Indians traveled across the Bering Strait from Eurasia into North America. As animals migrated south so did the people. Native Americans roamed and settled in what we now know as the Verde Valley and Prescott areas. The Sinagua built pueblos and cliff houses, hunted and farmed the land. We do not know to this day why they left. We still see remains of their homes today. The Yavapai and Apache tribes lived in this area.

SETTLERS

In 1876 the first Anglo settlers came to Verde Valley. By 1902 there were 20 families. They raised cattle and horses and irrigated the land to plant crops.

Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly HOW SEDONA GOT ITS NAME

Sedona was names after Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly (1877-1950). She was the wife of the city’s first postmaster, Theodore Carlton Schnebly. Their home was the only one at the time big enough to house guests so many people stayed with them. The home was near the site of what is now Los Abrigados Resort and Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village. Schnebly started the psot office out of his home. He suggested the names “Oak Creek Crossing” and “Schnebly Station” to the Postmaster General in Washington, but both names were rejected because they were too long for a cancellation stamp. Theodore’s brother Ellsworth suggested submitting Sedona’s name. On June 26, 1902, the Postmaster approved the name “Sedona.” A large statue of Sedona is at the Sedona Public Library.
