Sedona AZ (October 3, 2017) – The Sedona Heritage Museum is hosting the next in its Living History speaker series on Wednesday October 11 at 10:00 a.m. at the Museum when Sedona resident Jack Seeley will share stories of his business relationship and personal memories of the infamous Stopwatch Gang.
In 1980, three of the most prolific bank robbers in U.S. history were living in Oak Creek Canyon, using Sedona as their home base while robbing banks all over the country. Seeley was teaching two to fly and one was in a poker club with a local Sheriff’s deputy. The talk will cover the ‘gang’s time in Sedona, how they got here, how they were arrested and their status today.
This is a free event and open to the public.
Every year, the Sedona Heritage Museum presents a series of Living History talks. Speakers include descendants of pioneers, long-time residents with historical stories to share or other story-tellers about history. The Museum is located at 735 Jordan Road in Jordan Historical Park in Uptown Sedona and is open daily 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For more information, call 928-282-7038.
