Sedona Heritage Museum Collecting COVID-19 Memories

The Sedona Historical Society is asking residents to share their COVID-19 experiences for posterity. The Society would like to capture some of the stories about how you are coping with the COVID-19 virus restrictions and risks. They plan to preserve these stories for the future as part of their permanent collection and possibly a future exhibit.

What has your experience been like? Do you have a funny, sad, poignant, uplifting story? What’s different, or the same? Share your stories about how you’re staying in touch, coping with kids at home, learning a new skill, etc. Anyone can submit a story by visiting the Society’s website and following the guidelines at

“We are living history.” said the Society’s Historian, Janeen Trevillyan. “Just as people are looking back in time now for valuable experiences and lessons-learned, along with inspiration and strength, so will future generations look back at our experiences in 2020 for their own know-how and insight.”

Stories and memories will become a collective diary of experiences. Guidelines for submission are on the webpage. Submissions will be screened before posting for public view for appropriateness; it is not intended as an opinion-sharing forum.

The Sedona Historical Society’s mission is to research, preserve and tell the history of the greater Sedona area. For more information, call 928-282-7038.
