Sedona is located in the heart of the State of Arizona, at the entrance of the Oak Creek Canyon & Slide Rock.

About 1 1/2 hour drive north of Phoenix and 35 minutes south of Flagstaff (Interstate 17). State Highway 179 from

Cottonwood to the West and 89A South from Flagstaff are the two main highways into Sedona.


Sedona and the  Grand Canyon are major vacation destinations rivaling many of the National Parks. About 3.5 million

people visit Sedona each year. A short drive to Williams, Arizona and you can catch the Grand Canyon Train.


At the foot of the Mogollon Rim and the Colorado Plateau, Sedona is completely surrounded by the Coconino

National Forest. Sedona has about 300 days of sunshine annually,  a mild climate with 4 distinct seasons. Summer

time is heaven compared to the extreme heat of Phoenix and winters a warm retreat from Flagstaff’s approx. 25 degree

colder temperatures. Fall brings a spectacular display of nature's colors, while the bright red-iron rocks touched with

snow during winter is most magical.. Spring brings in the lillys, juniper tree buds and breath-taking colored wild flowers.

City of Sedona, State of the City

 

There is a fairly high failure rate of small businesses, but this is primarily due to poor management or inaccurate

market studies rather than a stagnant business climate. Regardless, small businesses provide the majority of local jobs

within the community.

 

There are many artists in Sedona. Many are involved in forms of manufacturing, such as bronze sculpting, sold throughout

the world.  Visitor interest during the past decade has stimulated retirement  and vacation home acquisition and

construction, creating one of the more active real estate markets in the nation.  Quality of life is an important factor

to many new and growing industries or entrepreneurs who have the ability to locate anywhere. This includes the

availability of housing, quality of education, infrastructure, population, traffic, crime, climate and cultural opportunities.

Sedona rates very high in this category. The level of arts and cultural activities, quality shopping, restaurants, and

other amenities is very high for a community of this size. Traffic and other infrastructure issues however are being

addressed to maintain and enhance Sedona’s present quality of life. Other business location factors include access

to market and labor. Sedona has one of the best educated and skilled labor forces in Arizona, while it is only a 2 hour

drive to Phoenix. The business climate in Sedona is healthy. Retail sales are steady. The community is supportive of

many local businesses, but the reception of new businesses is mixed.


Sedona’s economy is generally good. With significant population growth between 1980 and 1991 the workforce grew

a little less during the same period. This would seem to indicate that the economy is not providing the jobs necessary

to support the population, but this is not really the case. Jobs are being created, but many are being filled with

individuals who live outside Sedona. Since the workforce growth has not kept up with the population growth, and

unemployment has dropped, it indicates many new residents choose not to enter the workforce. This trend is expected

to continue


The median price of a single-family home in Sedona is over twice the National average. These figures show an overall

wealth in the community and promise to remain strong Although rural, Sedona has an advantage with its excellent quality

of life; it cannot be all things to all people. It depends on surrounding communities to assist in meeting many of

the needs of its residents. By working together within the Verde Valley region, communities can avoid duplication of

efforts and ensure that the needs of the residents within the region are met.

style village also features four award winning restaurants, sunny flower filled courtyards, graceful old sycamores, colorful

tiles, ornate iron gates, fountains and carillons.


Tlaquepaque hosts special events such as Fiesta del Tlaquepaque, a traditional Mexican Independence Day celebration,

and the charming old world church located within is available for wedding receptions and special events. Shopping, dining,

or just a leisurely stroll on the cobblestone walkways, Tlaquepaque’s ambiance is truly unforgettable.

Art in Public Places
Sedona is truly a “Gallery without Walls”, a home to hundreds of artists and myriads of galleries showcasing a variety of

artwork. In 1992, the Sedona City Council adopted an “Art in Public Places Program”. Integral to the program is an

ordinance requiring all municipal construction and renovation projects to allocate 1% of the capital expenditure to the

Art In Public Places Fund. The result is a community rich in art exhibited outdoors for public viewing, a stimulus to civic

pride and involvement, and enriching the lives of its citizens and visitors alike.

 


Artist in the Classroom
The Artist in the Classroom Project has provided quality Arts education to students in the Sedona – Oak Creek School

District since 1989. Funded by the City of Sedona Arts and Culture Commission, the program pays an hourly stipend to a

roster of local artist. The artists are interviewed each year and chosen for their artistic merit and desire and experience

working with students. The roster includes professionals from all four Arts disciplines, representing a variety of backgrounds

ranging form commercial graphic design and animation to improvisatory theatre and jazz performance. The participants

make presentations and lead activities in K-12 traditional and charter school classrooms.

 


Sedona Heritage Museum
The Sedona Heritage Museum is located in Jordan Historical Park at 735 Jordan Road – open daily from 11:00 a.m to

3:00  p.m. The main museum building was the farm home of Walter and Ruth Jordan. Its first room tells the stories of

Sedona pioneers, how they lived and the things they used. The core of the Jordan House is the family’s original one-room

cabin, built in 1930 and now restored with original furnishings. One room now commemorates more than 80 feature movies

made in Sedona – many during the Golden Age of westerns. Another room shows the life of the real cowboys and how

they worked. There’s an old-time laundry room, and a room for temporary exhibits. There’s also an interesting US Forest

Service exhibit provided by the Friends of the Forest. The gift shop offers items hand-made by Sedona artists and

crafts specialists. Included are silver jewelry in the museum’s apple logo design, as well as hand-painted and appliquéd

vests, pottery and paintings.

Sedona Teen Center
Ideas generated from a Sedona Youth Forum in 1997 revealed a need for teens in the Verde Valley to have a place of their

town. The Friends of Garland Park, Inc, a non-profit, civic minded organization pursued the design and construction of a

teen center in Sedona. In 2001, with half of the needed funding, ground was broken on the Posse Grounds Road site. Over

the next year, the Friends of Garland Park joined forces with the City of Sedona and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northern

Arizona and brought the project to completion in August 2002. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Northern Arizona currently

manages the facility while implementing local and national programs for teens. Facilities and events offered at the Teen

Center are: Concerts – live bands, field trips, homework assistance, high speed internet access- make music CD’s, food

and drink, pool tables, ping pong, air hockey, music area, darts, movies and resources for youth jobs.

 

Jack Malmgren State Park is adjacent to the Teen Center – “A cool place to hang out while having fun with your friends”.

Mondays through Thursdays 3 PM – 8 PM   Fridays & Saturdays 3 PM – 11 PM   Closed Sunday

National Register of Historic Places. Fort Verde State Historic Park Military occupation of the Verde Valley

began in 1865 at the request of settlers who had established farms near the Verde River. These settlers had severely

disrupted the hunting and gathering economy of the Tonto-Apache and Yavapai Indians who in turn began raiding the

fields of the settlers leading to major conflicts between the army and the Indians. Between 1873 and 1875 nearly 1500

Indians from various bands were placed on an 800 sq. mile reserve near present day Cottonwood. A later move in the

cold with insufficient food to San Carlos Reservation resulted in death for many, which in turn caused an uprising

(the last major battle with Apaches in Arizona). With the cessation of raids, the fort was abandoned in 1891. A

museum was founded in 1956 and Fort Verde State Historic Park was created in 1970.The 10-acre park includes

four of the original adobe fort buildings which contain military and Indian artifacts.

 

Tuzigoot (Apache for “crooked water”) is the remnant of a Sinaguan village built between 1125 and 1400. It

crowns the summit of a long ridge that rises 120 feet above the Verde valley. The original pueblo was two stories

high in places and had 77 ground-floor rooms. There were few exterior doors; entry was by way of ladders through

openings in the roofs. The village began as a small cluster of rooms that were inhabited by about 50 persons for a

hundred years. In the 1200’s the population doubled and doubled again as refugee farmers, fleeing drought in

outlying areas, settled here.

 

Montezuma Castle Sinagua farmers began building this five-story, 20-room dwelling early in the 12th century. It stands

in a cliff recess a hundred feet about the valley. Early settlers marveled at the structure and thought mistakenly that it

was Aztecan in origin. A short distance west is Castle A, once an imposing six-story apartment with about 45 rooms,

now a badly deteriorated ruin. This dwelling was built against the base of the cliff. The creek was a reliable source of

water, and there was fertile land on the nearby terrace.


Montezuma Well Montezuma Well has all the surprise of a lake and fairly lush vegetation in the midst of desert.

The well is a limestone sink formed long ago by the collapse of an immense underground cavern. The springs that

feed it flow continuously.Both the Hohokam and Sinagua irrigated crops with its waters. Traces of their irrigation

ditches, thickly coated with lime, can be seen. The Hohokam pithouse on view was built about 1100. The Sinaguan

dwellings here vary in size from large pueblos of 55 rooms to one-room houses. Between 1125 and 1400 about

150 to 200 Sinaguans live here.
