The Sedona Heritage Museum announced its newest “changing” exhibit last week – the celebration of Arizona’s 100 years of statehood. The exhibit has several displays including the state symbols (the Five ‘C’s of Arizona*), historical time lines of Arizona and Sedona, a look back at voting in 1912, and much, much more!
“The research for this exhibit was a fascinating opportunity,” says exhibit curator, Janeen Trevillyan. “We found local diary entries about circa 1912 voting and daily life, the list of local registered voters in 1910 and 1912, and, of course learned tidbits of that helped shape a picture of life in Arizona and the Verde Valley as our residents struggled with divisive constitutional issues and a very rural population.” (From Sedona.biz)
The exhibit will run through the year, commemorating Arizona statehood, but will have special additions at certain times.
The Sedona Heritage Museum is located at 735 Jordan Road in Jordan Historical Park, opened daily from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For more information, call 928-282-7038.
