Historic SedonaThe Sedona area's earliest schools were built and run by residents without government support. The first school was a one-room building at the Schuerman property on Red Rock Loop Road in 1892. Olive Welch was the teacher and there were seven children. In 1899, a one-room log school became the first in Oak Creek Canyon. In the early days, some ranchers migrated to high country and others took Forest Service jobs up the canyon in summer. In the winter they moved back to Sedona so the children could attend school. By 1912 the Sedona area had enough students to merit a third school. The land for the Brewer School was leased from homesteader Frank Owenby. This building was expanded in 1930 to three rooms with an auditorium and a bathroom with indoor plumbing.
