Lee Van Deren, cattleman, arrived to put his children in the new Sedona school opened in 1910. Ranching was a major part of Sedona's early economy. Round ups and cattle drives were a twice a year occurrence for ranchers when moving their herds from winter to summer grazing allotments.

About 1924, Lee's son, Earl, bought 40 acres along the west side of this road and with hard work soon paid off the property and became a successful rancher.

Earl occasionally added to his income by fighting fires for the Forest Service and providing cattle, horses and wagons for use in movies being made in and around Sedona.

But after WWII, Earl saw Sedona changing with an influx of tourists and new residents. He could see the end of ranching as he knew it so he sold out and moved to Montana. The first street west of here is named for the Van Deren Family.
