    The early days (1800s) began the land rush. Farmers and ranchers settled the area. They called the area Verde. Around 1915, Cottonwood started to spring up. It got the name from the Cottonwood trees that rose up around the Verde river not far from where the old jail stands now. Cottonwood began booming when many settlers wanted to own their own businesses and homes. It had a reputation for lawlessness because those who were kicked out of company towns came to settle and there was an equal number of law abiding citizens and families that also wanted to settle the area.

    Cottonwood had a reputation for being a big bootlegging area. This bootlegging was considered some of the best around and attracted people from areas as far away as Los Angeles and Phoenix.

    By 1920, Cottonwood was called the Biggest Little Town in Arizona. Cottonwood had more businesses than any other area; but there were only 300 residents in the local community.

    Mae West stayed at the Cottonwood Hotel before she was famous. She spent time in the historic section during the heyday of Prohibition. Mae frequented all the Speak-Easys up and down Main street.

    The McDonald's in Sedona is the only one in the world with turquoise arches. They are not yellow because the city thought they would mesh poorly with the surrounding red rocks. The first color McDonald's offered was turquoise, which the city accepted.The Re/MAX office is located in the same shopping center!
