One might claim that Sedona began 350 million years ago. That's how long it has taken for Nature to form our red rocks by earth thrusts, sea changes and erosion forces. Or maybe 1000 years ago, when primitive hunter-gatherers evolved into the Native Americans we know as Sinagua, who farmed and traded with faraway tribes. Our Museum is focused on the period from 1870 to 1950 -- the lifestyles and works of the people who pioneered this community, and on Sedona's first industry, raising apples and peaches.
At least 76 movies have been filmed here, and the greatest stars have worked here. We are preserving their stories, and offer them to you in our exhibits as well. How the real cowboys lived and worked -- their story is told and the things they used are here too.
History is not frozen in time it continues. As the present learns from the past, the future will learn from us. The Sedona Historical Society builds on what we have and our exhibits will continue to grow and change.
Sedona Heritage Museum mission is to research, preserve and teach the history of the greater Sedona area.
