Sedona News (August 10, 2021) Acquired by the City in 2014, the Ranger Station on Brewer Road is a 3.4 acre property that includes an historic house (1917) and barn (1934) that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Since these are two of Sedona’s 23 designated City Historic Landmarks, all restorations are being done in compliance with Arizona’s State Historic Preservation Office consultation and statutes.
While the City is still looking at this site and others as a temporary shuttle exchange for the trailhead shuttles that will be deployed in Spring 2022, this has not changed the City’s timeline for improvement to the park.
Here is the timeline of what work has been done and what will happen in the future:
• 2020 – 2022 – House/Barn exterior restoration
• 2022 – 2023 – House/Barn interior restoration
• 2023 – 2025 – Construction of parking lot, landscaping, restroom and lawn
• 2025 – 2026 – Plaza, landscaping and gardens
These efforts will continue to move forward even if the location is used on a temporary basis for any part of the trailhead shuttle project.
Last night, City Council approved funding for the next phase of restoration to the exterior of the Ranger Station Barn. To learn more, visit our website here for the City Council meeting where this was discussed: https://sedonaaz.swagit.com/play/08102021-1499.
