SEDONA - Did you know?

The sun shines an average of over 300 days of the year in Sedona, AZ.

AZ has more National Parks and National Monments than any other state and SEDONA is centrally located by most of them.

Sedona and AZ have more mountainour countryside than Switzerland.

Sedona is located in the southern part of the largest stand of Ponderosa pines in the world!

Sedona is 4300 feet above sea level.

How Sedona got its name: The town of Sedona was named for the wife of T.Carl Schnebly. When Carl wanted to establish a post office, he submitted two names to the government---Schnebly Station and Oak Creed Crossing. Both were deemed too long for a cancellation stamp. Carl's brother suggested the post office be named after Sedona. The postmaster general liked the name because it was short.
