Sedona Facts



Interesting Facts about Sedona

Did You Know? In 1901, T. Carl Schnebly and his wife, Sedona, moved to the fairly unpopulated Arizona area and after complaints from residents that it took too long to get their mail, Schnebly applied for a postal permit under the name "Schnebly Station" and "Oak Creek Crossing." Both names were rejected as they were too long to put on a cancellation stamp, and Schnebly tried again using his wife's name, Sedona, which was approved by postal officials in 1902. Sedona is famous for its Red Rock topography. Its desert locale is a magnet for visitors from around the world looking for unsullied peace, quiet and dry meditative air.
