Historic Sedona

In early times. Uptown Sedona was a patchwork of orchards, homestead and pastures. In the late 1930s, the Jordan's built a stone building along the highway from which to sell their fruit to the increasing traveler traffic coming down the newly completed road through Oak Creek Canyon. At about the same time Charley Thompson moved the post office into the main part of town and ran a small store, also. A Thanksgiving Day trip to town for wine resulted in Lee Bird buying the store and building the Oak Creek Store, Tavern and Restaurant.

As late as 1945 the entire town consisted of a service station, and the store and tavern. Faye Crenshaw opened the town's first real estate office across from the Tavern in 1950. Nearby, Carl Richard's blacksmith shop and garage was also the first fire station.

Development brought pressure to the Forest Service to trade additional parcels within the town. Sedona's fire timeshare opened in January 1984 - a new real estate concept at the time.
