“Haunted Halloween” at the Sedona Heritage Museum 

The Sedona Heritage Museum presents poet and author Michael Peach in a special and spooky performance of “Haunted History” on Saturday October 28 at 3:00 p.m. in the historic Fruit Packing Shed.

Come spend an autumn afternoon at the Museum and hear ghostly tales – some of which have their origins right in our own back yard!  Peach will share true stories about ghostly encounters and Halloween fun.  The show will include an original piece called “Peoria’s Runaway Pumpkin”, based on Peoria, Arizona’s Halloween surprise of a 25-foot-tall, 300 pound pumpkin gone rogue.  Also on the play bill are four of Mike’s original poems: “Little Bill” about the unsolved alleged murder of Bill Fredricks at the Van Deren cabin; “The Hauntings of the Red Ghost”, a true story about a 19th Century Arizona monster; “The Cactus Killer”, a true story of murder and revenge in the Arizona desert; and “The Ghosts of Wilson Canyon” based on the death of bear hunter Richard Wilson in 1885. Plus, Mike always throws in a surprise or two and new works.

An award-winning actor, playwright and historian Michael Peach is especially good at bringing to life history and his subjects.  But, he isn’t afraid to also spin some tall tales, too.   Informative and entertaining, Mike’s shows have long been a favorite of university, state and national parks, and historically-oriented audiences.

The show is about an hour long.  Tickets are $6, with children under 12 free.  Museum admission is separate.

Sedona Heritage Museum Photo Chosen for Arizona State Archives Month Poster 

The Sedona Heritage Museum has announced that one of their almost 50,000 historic images of the greater Sedona area has been selected for inclusion on the 2017 Arizona Archives Month poster.

October is Archives Month, and each year, the Archives and Records Management Division of the Arizona State Library, Archives, and Public Records produces a poster highlighting materials from archives around the state. This year the state is celebrating 100 years since the Arizona Legislature officially adopted the flag. Submissions were to be related to the history of the flag or compelling photographs from Arizona’s past that feature the flag prominently.

The local Museum’s submission was a photo from 1964 of a flag-raising at the Sedona Chamber of Commerce building. The state flag in the photo was donated by Chamber member Marcus McCutchan, and had flown in Korea when he served there. This is at least the 3rd time that a photo from the Sedona Heritage Museum’s collection has been selected to appear on an Archives Month poster.

Arizona Archives Month posters are meant to represent the collections of both large and small Arizona repositories.  Over a thousand posters will be distributed to state legislators, schools, family history and genealogy groups, museums, archival repositories and government offices throughout the state.  Archives Month posters are made possible through generous funding from the Arizona Historical Records Advisory Board.

The Museum is located at 735 Jordan Road in Jordan Historical Park in Uptown Sedona and is open daily 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  For more information, call 928-282-7038.

September 16: Sedona Heritage Museum Hosts Book World Premiere 

Hear Lisa Schnebly Heidinger, Sedona’s great-granddaughter, speak and attend her book-signing for her new book “The Journal of Sedona Schnebly” on Saturday, September 16 from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Museum. Lisa has spent 30 years doing research. The book is a journal format and tells the story of Sedona’s life from her early teens until her last night on earth. Lisa has written 9 other books about various aspects of Arizona. This event is free. Call (928) 282-7038.

Sedona Heritage Museum Hosts World Premiere of New Book on Sedona’s Namesake

The Sedona Heritage Museum is proud to host the world premiere of the latest book by Lisa Schnebly Heidinger, entitled “The Journal of Sedona Schnebly.” Lisa will speak on Saturday, September 16 at 11:00 a.m. at the Museum about what she learned about her great-grandmother through this effort and then sign copies of the new book until 2 p.m. Birthday cake will be served in honor of Lisa’s father Larry Schnebly’s birthday, which is the 18th.

The book is a journal format and tells the story of Sedona’s life from her early teens until her last night on earth.

Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly followed her husband west when their small Missouri town condemned his Methodist religion. Arriving in Arizona Territory in 1901, they planted orchards and hosted early tourists in what is now named Sedona. This vivid journal of her life introduces you to a pioneer family – from their genteel upbringings through adventures with rattlesnakes, trappers and colorful guests. With photographs from family collections, this volume of Sedona Schnebly’s experiences and ruminations draws you into a fiercely private woman’s life that is by turns amusing and heartbreaking, and always fascinating.

Lisa has been working on this project for 30 years, and says if her great-grandmother’s journals had ever been discovered, “this is what I would have wanted to find.”

Lisa Schnebly Heidinger has written nine other books about various aspects of Arizona before this tour de force journal: a culmination of decades of conducting interviews and exploring archives. Voted OneBookAZ author for her Arizona Centennial book, she shares Sedona and T.C. Schnebly’s deep love of Arizona and of travel. A former television and newspaper reporter, then editorial columnist, she draws you into the story of a complex woman who became an accidental icon for Oak Creek Canyon, which now draws millions of visitors from around the world.

The Sedona Heritage Museum is in Jordan Historical Park at 735 Jordan Rd in Uptown Sedona, AZ.  For more information, call 928-282-7038.  www.sedonamuseum.org.

August 10: the documentary “In Pursuit of Silence”

The Sedona International Film Festival presents a one night only special premiere of the documentary “In Pursuit of Silence” on Thursday, Aug. 10, at 4 and 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

“In Pursuit of Silence” is a meditative exploration of silence and the impact of noise on our lives. The film takes us on an immersive cinematic journey around the globe — from a traditional tea ceremony in Kyoto, to the streets of Mumbai, the loudest city on the planet — and inspires us to both experience silence and celebrate the wonders of our world.

“‘In Pursuit of Silence’ is a meditative film that I also consider a piece of devotional work about a subject that many have tried to encapsulate in some form or another for ages,” said director Patrick Shen. “Rather than encapsulate we’ve tried in a sense to free it, paying homage to the ineffable qualities of silence.

“The film was shot and edited in a way that mimics our experience of the world when we are still. The overall rhythm of the film was carefully crafted with the human metabolism in mind,” Shen said. “Ultimately, I hope that the film challenges audiences to slow down and on some level make the world new again for them.”

Production of “In Pursuit of Silence” took place in eight countries: the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, China, Taiwan and India, over two years.

Highlights from the production include filming in the anechoic chamber at Orfield Labs in Minneapolis [the quietest place on Earth], festival season in Mumbai [the loudest city in the world], Alaska’s Denali National Park, a tea ceremony at the famous Urasenke Tea House in Kyoto, schools suffering under the elevated train in New York City, inside BMW’s “sound cathedral,” Trappist and Zen monasteries and the “silent walker” who walked across America under a vow of silence.

“In Pursuit of Silence” will show at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Thursday, Aug. 10, at 4 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 or $9 for Film Festival members. Call 282-1177 for tickets and more information.

Sedona’s Secret 7 Campaign Launched

Sedona’s Secret 7 is a multi-media campaign that reveals hidden trails and locations in Sedona. The campaign was created to provide visitors with more reasons to return and extend their stay. Our intent is to also move visitors away from the popular trails that are getting worn out, like Devil’s Bridge, in order to help sustain our natural resources for generations to come.

Yappy Hour
Multiuse field at Posse Grounds Park

Weekly social hour on the cool grass for friendly dogs and their owners.

Yappy Hour is a one hour per week event that takes place on the beautiful green grass of the multi-use field at Posse Grounds Park. Under normal circumstances, City Code and Park Rules require all dogs to be on a leash and to remain off the athletic fields at the park, but during this event we get to bend those rules!

Know before you go:

  • Owners must pick up after their pets.
  • If there is an increase in the amount of off-leash users on the athletic fields during non-event times, this event may be canceled.
  • PLEASE NOTE: the multi-use field is not a dog park. There are gaps in the fence where a pet could potentially squeeze through. There is no division of small dog vs large dog areas. Owners are responsible for the safety and behavior of their dogs.

Help us to make this a fun gathering for your dog!

For more event information, please contact the Sedona Parks and Recreation office at (928) 282-7098.

Lions (& Rattlers & Dragons & Longhorns) & Bears – Oh My! @ Sedona Heritage Museum 

Aug 5 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm 

“And so, in his quest for goals or gold, a man may lie to his friends, and work out ways to fool the law, and tie up all loose ends. And he may mask illicit tasks, and even face down danger. But in spite of his brain, and his place in the food chain…there’s no escaping nature.”

An award-winning actor, playwright, and historian, Michael Peach is especially good at bringing to life history and his subjects. But, he isn’t afraid to spin some tall tales, too.

This new show focuses on nature and animal friends (or foes) of the southwest. “…and according to this plan, God meant the hand of man to tame the wild and cultivate dominion. So the higher up, the gladder, here on evolution’s ladder. But maybe that’s a matter of opinion.”
