Historic Sedona

The original 'heart' of Sedona was the location of our first hotel, first post office, first school, first store, first church services, first patented homestead, and first institutional employer - the US Forest Service.

Near the town's crossroads our first commercial district, or 'heart' developed. The Hart Store had the first commercial electricity and the Civilian Conservation Corps Camp boys sat in front of the store on Saturday nights and counted cars. The Sedona School's first teacher was the US Forest Ranger's wife and when the school burned down classes were held at the Ranger Station.

After the road was re-routed in 1939, the historic 'heart' of Sedona became a sleepy back street neighborhood. Several historic resources continue to exist in this area, including Sedona's oldest surviving structure - the Sedona Ranger Station residence, plus Hart store, a 1930s era post office building, two buildings built by the CCCs, and the still active Owenby irrigation ditch.
