The Sedona Heritage Museum is hosting the next in its Living History speaker series on Thursday October 10 at 10:00 a.m. at the Museum when Margaret Hangan presents “The Sheep Industry in Arizona”.

Hear stories of the Basque families who have been in this business for generations and how their industry has changed, yet stayed the same.
This is a free event and open to the public.
