Historic Sedona

By 1900, about 15 homesteading families called this area home. T.C. Schnebly was an enterprising young man who owned 80 acres, where his home also served as the area's first hotel and general store. He saw a need for regular mail service, so Schnebly petitioned for the establishment of a post office, using his hotel as its location and himself as postmaster. He submitted the names Schnebly Station or Oak Creek Crossing to the Postmaster General in Washington, but was told these had too many letters for the postmark. In order to satisfy this regulation his brother, Ellsworth, suggested "Why don't you name if after wife?". It was accepted on June 26, 1902, and that is how Sedona got its name.

Sedona married Theodore Carlton Schnebly on her 20th birthday. Ellsworth Schnebly had moved to Arizona for health reasons, and convinced T.C. and Sedona to join him in red rock country.

When Amanda Miller bore a daughter on February 24, 1877, in Gorin Missouri, she "just thought up" the name Sedona for the child because she thought it sounded pretty. So, the name Sedona isn't Spanish, nor Native American.
