Sedona AZ (November 1, 2018) – Join Keep Sedona Beautiful (“KSB”) for a discussion by Janeen Trevillyan, Sedona Heritage Museum President and Historian, as part of KSB’s Preserving the Wonder™ Speaker Series on Wednesday, November 14, 2018. Free to members, residents and visitors – all are welcome to join KSB at 5:30 p.m. at its historic Pushmataha Center on 360 Brewer Road. The evening will include complimentary appetizers donated by El Rincon Restaurante Mexicano and refreshments provided by KSB.
In a talk titled “Sedona’s Architectural Past – A Trip by Time Machine,” Janeen Trevillyan will discuss “What is the origin of the ‘Sedona Style’? How and why have building design and construction in the Oak Creek Canyon/greater Sedona area changed in our modern history of the past 135 years or so?” Come along and join Janeen as she takes us on a journey through time to see greater Sedona’s constructed past with wonderful historic images of Oak Creek Canyon’s early structures – from caves to tent houses, from log cabins to stick-built, and from native red rock to mid-century modern. By visiting places built and lived in by our forefathers and foremothers, we will be looking at their roots, values and dreams.
With a keen interest in historic preservation, Janeen served three terms on the City of Sedona’s Historic Preservation Commission. She has volunteered with the Sedona Heritage Museum for nineteen years and is their current President and Historian. She co-authored “Images of Sedona” – a historic photo book about local history. Making use of her long-term residency in Sedona and knowledge of Sedona’s local businesses and non-profit organizations, she became the Director of Member Services for the Sedona Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau and held that position for three years before retiring in 2016 to devote herself as an almost full-time volunteer at the Sedona Heritage Museum and Sedona Historical Society.
