When T.C. Schnebly named a post office after his wife in 1901, he was putting a very reserved woman in a very public place –Sedona, Arizona. She’s been there ever since.
Join the Phippen Museum at its Third Thursday Dinner and Program, 5:30 p.m. Oct. 18 for another popular program featuring a vivid presentation of the life of Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly by her great-granddaughter, Lisa Schnebly-Heidinger. Schnebly-Heidinger also happens to be an accomplished author and historian.
From the Sedona’s gentle upbringing and adventures with rattlesnakes, trappers, and colorful travels, Schnebly-Heidinger will draw guests into a fiercely private woman’s life that is by turns amusing and heartbreaking, but always fascinating.
