The Sedona Historical Society has made a huge difference not only in preserving the history of such a beautiful city, but they also provide the community they serve with educational opportunities and family fun. I am personally thankful for the society, since my dad is one of the many pioneers of the area that is remembered through their work. One of my fondest memories was going with him to the Museum for Veteran's Day. Memories of our pioneers need to be a part of the future as well as the past. Thanks to so many programs where the SHS shares those memories with young and old alike, I am very happy that our ancestors' legacies are in good hands.
This local non-profit provides an outstanding look into the history of the area both by its extensive exhibits located in a pioneer homestead and by its volumes of oral histories collected from early pioneers before they were lost to time. There is an extensive research library for those who wish to dig deeper that contains photos and newspaper clippings from the early days. The museum is staffed by a well-informed and enthusiastic group of people who make visitations fun.
