Sedona Heritage Museum Presents Throwback Thursday


sedona news
Volunteer thespians take on the personas of Sedona pioneers to share stories and introduce visitors to the Museum.

The Sedona Heritage Museum will host “Throwback Thursdays-Pioneers at the Museum”, on Thursday, March 3, at 3:30 p.m. at the Museum.


Visitors will enjoy a glimpse at parts of the Museum through encounters with costumed reenactors. These impersonators will breathe life into Sedona area pioneers and share a bit of that person’s life story and adventures in the Sedona of 70-120 years ago. Guests will rotate through the Museum buildings, delighting in parts of a “day-in-the life” of our early settlers and community-builders, and getting a peek at some of the hopes, dreams, and hardships in Arizona’s rustic Red Rock Country of the past.


The personalities who will present their stories are Sedona Schnebly-our town’s namesake; Dorothea Tanning-surrealist artist and Sedona resident for a time; Patty Fox-ranch wife; Jess Purtymun-original pioneer; Walter and Ruth Jordan-successful orchardists; and even a Harvey Girl revisiting the Museum’s train station. The afternoon will be overseen by a Sedona teacher from our first school, who will act as hostess.


After the tour, guests will enjoy a time to socialize with each other and the reenactors while enjoying cider and home baked treats.


Guests need to be prepared to walk and stand for a little over an hour and wear masks when indoors. This is a recurring monthly program.


Tickets are limited and can be purchased in advance for $15/adults at sedonamuseum.org. Walkups welcome if tickets available.


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