Sedona Arizona

Welcome to Red Rock Country! Whether you have come to Sedona to golf, shop, hike, bike, and rock climb or just plain relax and enjoy the scenery, we hope this tour will enrich your Sedona experience. We’ll introduce you to the story behind the magnificent scenery. You’ll hear about early settlers, Native Americans, plants, rocks and animals of the region, and the forces of nature that created this unique place.

If you could look at the state of Arizona from above, you would see the red, salmon, and cream-colored rocks of Sedona lace the edges of the 3,000-foot high Mogollon rim. A serendipitous set of natural phenomena has created a striking landscape of spires, buttes, and canyons. Here, at the edge of the Mogollon Rim, the wide expanses of the Colorado Plateau in northeastern Arizona tumble down through a jumble of mountains and canyons, and smooth out into broad basins and northwest trending mountain chains in southern and western Arizona.

“Red Rock Country” may look familiar to you, even if you’ve never been here before. It is one of the most photographed spots in Arizona, and these formations were featured in classic western movies like “Angel and the Badman” with John Wayne, “Broken Arrow” with Jimmy Stewart and “Call of the Canyon,” adapted from the novel written by Zane Grey.

Sedona is an unusual name for a town, but then, it was an unusual name for a baby. It’s not Spanish, or Native American, but simply, American. Amanda Miller, a woman of Pennsylvania Dutch heritage living in Missouri, made up the name for her daughter because she thought it sounded pretty. On Sedona’s 20th birthday in 1901, she married Theodore Carlton (Carl) Schnebly, who promptly took her to Arizona, where his brother Ellsworth was living.

Only five families lived in the area, and the new two-story Schnebly home was the one place large enough to accommodate guests, so it became the town’s first hotel and general store. Carl Schnebly organized a post office, and submitted the names “Oak Creek Crossing” and “Schnebly Station” to the Postmaster General. Upon being told that they were too long for a postmark, Carl’s brother suggested he name it after Sedona, and so the pretty place acquired a pretty name.
