DAY 6: VISIT THE SEDONA HERITAGE MUSEUM
The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The main museum building was the farm home of Walter and Ruth Jordan. Its first room tells the stories of Sedona pioneers, how they lived and the things they used. The core of the Jordan House is the family’s original one-room cabin, built in 1930 and now restored with original furnishings. Four rooms were added in 1937, and the remainder of the present house was added in 1947.
One room now commemorates almost 100 feature movies made in Sedona — many during the Golden Age of westerns. Another room shows the life of the real cowboys and how they worked. There’s an old-time laundry room, a school room, and a room dedicated to the Schnebly family.
A well-stocked gift shop offers items hand-made by Sedona artists and crafts specialists. Included are silver jewelry in the museum’s apple logo design, pens made from apple and peach wood grown on the museum grounds, as well as hand-painted and appliquéd vests, pottery and paintings.
The 3300-square-foot Apple Packing Shed has Walter Jordan’s original 46-foot apple grading machine and many other interesting exhibits. It is also the site of special events for local organizations.
The Sedona Heritage Museum is located in Jordan Historical Park at 735 Jordan Road in Uptown Sedona. The Museum is open daily from 11:00 a.m to 3:00 p.m. Admission is $3.00; Sedona Historical Society members and children under 12 are free. See Sedona Heritage Museum website for more information and the calendar of events.
