Frank L. Pendley, having arrived in the canyon in 1907, formally acquired the land under the Homestead Act in 1910.

This allowed Pendley to plant his first apple orchard in 1912, beginning the pattern of agricultural development that has dominated the site since that time. Pendley also grew garden produce and kept some livestock. 6871 N Highway 89A, Sedona, AZ 86336. 928.282.3034.
Jerome State Historic Park
P.O. Box D, Jerome, AZ 86331www.azstateparks.com/Parks/JERO(928) 634-5381Jerome's modern history began in 1876 when three prospectors staked claims on rich copper deposits. They sold out to a group which formed the United Verde Copper Company in 1883. The resultant mining camp of board and canvas shacks was named in honor of Eugene Jerome, the venture's principal backer. Hopes for the enterprise ran high, but the costs of operating, especially for transportation, outstripped profits, and the company folded in less than two years. P.O.
