6 Living History Talk - 1898 in the West: How the Spanish American War affected AZ and the USA - The Sedona Heritage Museum is hosting the next in its Living History speaker series on Wednesday March 13 at 10:00 a..m. at the Museum.

Peach’s show features his unique blend of original cowboy poetry with a tongue-in-cheek look at Arizona and local history.

Mike spins tales using jokes, stories, first person narrative, and original poems to explore the colorful history of our state. “If whiskey was their quest, men knew that the best came from Bill’s still outside of Sedona.”
But, women of the West aren’t ignored in his new show. “Fashion demands the ultimate price, ranchers wrangle a dragon, a con man rides a tornado, a super-powered horse gets distracted, and a frustrated businesswoman gets a leg up on the law.”
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.

A few tickets remain, but they are selling quickly.

'Red Rock' was what the area around the base of Cathedral Rock was known as long before anyone ever heard of the name 'Sedona.' Tour guide Paul Thompson, grandson of Oak Creek Canyon's first permanent Anglo settler J.J. Thompson, spent his earliest growing up years in Red Rock. Thompson leads these tours every year as a way of sharing his family's long history in the area and as a way to give back to the Museum for their preservation work.

The tour will visit the Chavez place, Dumas Ranch, Schuerman-Red Rock Cemetery, Schuerman family homestead house, the Armijo homestead house (on the National Register of Historic Places), ruins of the community's first school (1891), site of an early Oak Creek vineyard and an irrigation flume made of barrels, plus other sites, while hearing stories of the historic themes and people who inhabited this 'original' seat of civilization for our area.

Tours are October 1, 2, and 3, from 9 am-noon. Space is limited on the luxury coaches. Tickets are $50/Museum members, and $55/non-members and available for purchase at the Museum or by calling 928.282.7038.

"Time takes its toll on the body and soul of a cowboy out on the range." Or, so says award-winning actor, playwright and historian Michael Peach in his new show. He continues: "There’s enough aggravation at roundup without getting' your insides all bound up. But serving bad food can start up a feud if the cowboy’s complaints start to mound up."
Mike spins tales using jokes, stories, first person narrative, and original cowboy poetry to explore the hard work and hard play of ranching and cowboy life. "If whiskey was their quest, men knew that the best came from Bill’s still outside of Sedona." But, women of the West aren't ignored in his new show. "And volatile confrontations were not the exclusive domain of men. For Jerome was known to be the home of some fierce ladies of sin."
Informative, entertaining and family appropriate, Mike's shows have long been a favorite of university, state and national parks, and historically-oriented audiences. His first book is also destined to be a favorite.Tickets are $6, with children under 12 free. Museum admission is separate.

2 Living History Talk & Cemetery Walk - The Sedona Heritage Museum is hosting the next in its 2012 series of Living History presentations on Wednesday October 10, at 10:00 a.m. at their historic Cook Cedar Glade Cemetery, just off Airport Road, next to the Elks Lodge.

"Going, Going, Gone - Historic Cook Cemetery Walk", with Sedona Heritage Museum volunteer and Cemetery Committee Chair Ron Maassen. This is the oldest cemetery in the City of Sedona, established in 1918 when a victim of the Spanish Flu epidemic was buried in a little plot. Later, Henry Cook homesteaded 160 acres in Grasshopper Flat that included the site. Mr. Cook eventually set aside an expanded area for use as a cemetery for local settlers. The Cooks sold most of their ranch in the 1950s but retained ownership of the cemetery until 2005 when they deeded it to the Sedona Historical Society. The cemetery is a designated Sedona Historic Landmark.
Over the years, members of many early families have been laid to rest in this quiet location, including Henry Elmer Cook (1871-1955) and his wife Effie Tennie Jamison Cook (1876-1946); Jesse Elmer Purtymun (1879-1942) and his wife Maggie Elizabeth Thompson Purtymun (1884-1956);‘Red’ Hedges (1917-1978) a WWII vet and the first KSB Litter Lifter; and T.C. Schnebly (1868-1954) wife Sedona Schnebly (1877-1950) - our town’s first Postmaster and our namesake, and their little daughter Pearl.
This is a free event, open to the public.

Every year, the Sedona Heritage Museum presents a series of Living History talks. Speakers will include descendants of pioneers, long-time residents with historical stories to share or other story-tellers about history. For more information, call 928-282-7038.

12 Sedona Heritage Museum Anniversary Open House - The Sedona Heritage Museum is hosting a free party so the entire community can participate in a celebration of the 15th anniversary of "Sedona's Own Museum". The theme of the open house and party is "Be a Museum Insider for the Day", and is scheduled for Saturday, October 19 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

This free event is planned to be a day for locals and visitors alike to experience the Museum inside and out. Beginning at 11:00 a.m., Sedona's Mayor Rob Adams and other dignitaries will be on-hand for a brief program. Long-time volunteers who helped open the museum will be recognized, as well current volunteers. A special ending to the program will be the unveiling of a new piece of public art at the Museum.

After the opening program and sculpture unveiling, the day's activities will begin with a demonstration of the 1940s era mechanized apple sorting machine in the Jordan Fruit Packing Shed. These demonstrations will be held at a variety of times throughout the day. Also, all day, Museum volunteers will be offering a variety of behind-the-scenes activities. Members of the public will be able to assist with a small project in the Restoration Workshop or experience the proper way to archivally store clothing and textiles in a safe Museum-like manner.

There will be guided tours inside the Archives and Collections Room itself, along with guided tours of the general Museum. The Museum's digital catalog database system will be running so you can try your hand at a search to view inside the collection of almost 20,000 cataloged items and photos. Docents will be around to answer your questions about most any Museum function, exhibit, program or service. A complete schedule will be posted of special demonstration and tour times.

For kids of 'all ages', volunteers will be leading a "make & take" project in the Kids Korral where you can make an old-fashioned cornhusk doll. A corn husk doll is a Native American toy, a doll made out of the dried leaves or "husk" of a corn cob. Making corn husk dolls was adopted by early European settlers in the U.S. and is now practiced as a link to the arts and crafts of our founders.

Museum Gift Shop will be offering everyone a 15% discount for just the day. The shop specializes in items made by local artists and crafters and books about local history. They also feature a section of old movies made during the heyday of film-making in Sedona.

A special treat will be friends of the Museum who will be firing up their open campfires and baking cowboy biscuits in Dutch ovens over open fires all day. A long-time basic of cowboys and homesteaders, these tender and delicious staples of the trail will be served plain or with a little honey or butter. Nothing like it!

Special guests for the day will be many members of Sedona pioneer families who are expected to be in attendance and will be ‘holding court’ in the historic Fruit Packing Shed. Representatives from the Jordan family, the family that built the buildings where the Museum is housed, will be present, including two of the children who grew up in the house. A large contingent of members of the area's fourth permanent family, the Schuerman and Owenby families, are also planning to attend. This will be your opportunity to meet and greet and ask questions about local history and get answers directly from some of those who lived it.

The new sculpture at the Museum is a gift from the Red Rock Arts Council (RRAC). The RRAC has been in the forefront of Art in Public Places starting with the sculpture of Sedona in front of the Sedona Public Library. Now they have set their sights on a demonstration of history in its most basic form – story telling. The unveiling of 'Josie' at the morning program will add the life size statue of a pioneer girl at the feet of the 'Story Tellin' Cowboy', a life size bronze set in place last year. With the addition of 'Josie', the planned vignette of three statues will be 2/3 complete. All that is left is a pioneer boy to join 'Josie' while they listen to the cowboy communicating Sedona history and heritage.

Just one more way to make this a special day, and as a way for the Museum to say "Thank you" to supporters, a light lunch will be available at noon, for free, until it is gone.

19AZ0503014e037 - Sedona Museum's Fall Arts & Crafts Show - The gift-giving holiday season is fast upon us all. What do we do for those on our list who have everything? You may want to check out this weekend’s Fall Arts & Crafts Sale at the Sedona Heritage Museum. The show is Saturday only at the Museum in Uptown Sedona. Doors are open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The show will be set up in the historic Jordan apple packing shed and surrounding park.

This show is an old-fashioned arts and crafts show like you remember them to be. All items are hand-made. The artist or craftsman sits behind each table to personally tell you how they make their pieces, where they find their unusual materials or what inspires them. Many of these people only do this show or a very limited number of other shows making their items unusual and uncommon. They will have a large variety of handmade and one-of-a-kind offerings.

At this show you will find fine art, ceramics, weavings, wood carvings and other wood art pieces, and quilts and home decor items of all kinds. Jewelers will show beaded, fused glass, and other original materials made into jewelry. Beautiful wearable art includes clothing, scarves, and accessories. Gifts galore including greeting cards, candles, hand-crafted soaps & lotions, and many, many other choices. Not all vendors take credit cards or out of town checks, so plan to bring cash if possible.

This show has matured over the years to about 50 vendors, sold-out vendor space, and a large attendance. The Sedona Community Center will be serving lunch on the grounds, so your lunch purchase benefits another local non-profit. In addition to the arts and crafts booths, the Museum will hold a bake sale of only home-made goodies from 9:00 am until they are all gone! The Museum Gift Shop will also be open for holiday shopping, specializing in locally made items plus movies made in Sedona and books.

26 Arizona History & Hi-Jinx, by Mike Peach, Historical Narrative - The Sedona Heritage Museum presents Michael Peach in a performance of his new original show "Arizona History & Hi-Jinx" at 1:30 p.m.
"In the wild, wild West it was considered best to provide for one’s own defense. Even-ing a score was a necessary chore whenever things got too intense. Many a slight could result in a fight with fists, or knives, or guns. Disputes were often settled with blood and metal, when all was said and done." So says award-winning actor, playwright and historian Michael Peach in his new show, "Arizona History and Hi-Jinx" which will be performed every first Saturday at the Sedona Heritage Museum.
Mike uses jokes, stories, first person narrative, and original cowboy poetry to explore quirky and mysterious events in Arizona’s colorful history. Cowboys and livestock, Hollywood, bootleggers, wildlife, and political chicanery are all featured as he spins tales of Arizona’s transition from territory to statehood.
Informative, entertaining and family appropriate, Mike’s shows have long been a favorite of university, state and national parks, and historically-oriented audiences. This show has been recognized by the state as an Official Arizona Centennial Event.
The show is about an hour long and appropriate for all ages. Tickets are $6, with children under 12 free. Museum admission is separate.
The Sedona Historical Society operates the Sedona Heritage Museum on the Jordan Farmstead at 735 Jordan Rd in Jordan Historical Park.

11 Mata Ortiz Pottery with artist Oralia Lopez - The Sedona Heritage Museum will host a history presentation and artist’s demonstration on Mata Ortiz pottery on Monday, November 16 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Artist Oralia Lopeza has set the standard in Mata Ortiz for finely executed geometric pottery designs and will be demonstrating her intricate painting skills. Some of her pottery will be available for sale at prices similar to direct prices in her village.
John Bezy, geologist and co-author of "The Artistry and History of Mata Ortiz" has worked with the potters of Mata Ortiz for nearly 30 years. He will offer a presentation on the history, inspiration and appreciation of this unique regional art form.
Mata Ortiz pottery developed in a small village in Chihuahua, Mexico, less than 100 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border. Traders from this ancient city greatly influenced the Anasazi, Hohokam, and Mogollon cultures of the Southwest. Pottery from this site was the inspiration for modern Mata Ortiz ceramics. Seen as a revival of an ancient Mesoamerican pottery tradition and based on 600 year old processes, materials, pigments, and designs, this pottery is considered art not craft. It has evolved from imitating pre-Hispanic designs to contemporary expressions by each individual potter or pottery family who produce distinctive individualized ware.
This is a free event and open to the public.

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

Naville’s second western novel, “Cripple Creek” is an Amazon Top 100 Best Seller. In this story Mason Proffit inherits a gold mine but is hunted by a disreputable attorney who wants to take possession. Proffit’s old friend ‘Wild Bill’ agrees to ride along with him to make his claim. The two fastest guns in the West run into trouble along the way.
Patrick will also be signing his first book, “Echo Whispers”, recipient of five-star reviews on the Barnes & Noble website. Ever wonder what happened to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid? This novel imagines the possibilities of the famous train robbers returning to the U.S. during the ‘modern’ era of the 1920s.
Naville has lived in Arizona for 36 years. He has had a love affair with the old west ever since he was a young boy and watched t.v. western classics like "The Lone Ranger" and "The Roy Rogers Show."
"I love the telling of a good story.” he says. “Whether the reader is a fan of the western genre or not, my goal is to place the reader in the scene and make them feel what my characters are experiencing. They will feel the hot, dusty streets; the smell of the horse's sweat; the desperation that comes with facing an adversary at high noon and knowing that one of them will likely die."
Refreshments will be served. The Sedona Heritage Museum is located at 735 Jordan Road in Uptown Sedona. For more information, call 928-282-7038.
