"I was beyond delighted to have a local business person refer me to KSB as an alternative venue

for our fast approaching one day program in Sedona. We have been coming to Sedona for many, many years and had not

discovered this hidden gem right in the heart of Sedona yet off in a quiet sanctuary location.

Everything was perfect for our needs. We are very grateful for the custodians of KSB and most definitely

would choose this facility again and again."   Arlene Potash, The Learning Center for Human Development

Our Building in 1960

Harold and Christine Strohm built their Old-West style building and opened "Museum, Et Cetera" to showcase their collection of antiques. 

The Strohms name the building 'Pushmataha' after a Choctaw Chief.  It means "He has won all the honors of his race."  

The building is part of the story of commercial development in Sedona in the 1960s.   

In 1993, Susan Coleman donated Pushmataha to Keep Sedona Beautiful, to preserrve the parcel as it is.  The deed restricts the building's use to "environmental purposes."

KSB property becomes a Certified Wildlife Habitat!

altThe National Wildlife Foundation (NWF) has selected the property surrounding Keep Sedona Beautiful's historical Pushmataha building (Sedona Historical Landmark No. 15, located at 360 Brewer Road) as a NWF Certified Wildlife Habitat! To qualify for this prestigious designation, the property must demonstrate an abundance of native plants, trees, available food sources, a water source, cover and nesting sites, attract a variety of birds, butterflies and other wildlife, while helping to protect our local environment.

Spearheaded by volunteers Jolene Pierson, Dave Norton and Bill Pumphrey, the KSB Garden will soon be an outdoor venue for various programs.  KSB applied for the designation as a compliment to the current Coleman-Black Garden Project. The vision of this garden also includes pathways, serenity resting areas, and an educational component.

KSB is actively seeking additional donations to fund this project. To learn more or to help us as a volunteer, call Jan or Wendy at 928.282.4938 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

 

Who is Pushmataha?

Pushmataha, a Native American Chief of the Choctaw Nation, was a warrior, diplomat and gifted negotiator.  He effectively confronted a rapidly changing era caused by the ever-expanding European and American presence. In this same spirit of leadership and diplomacy, Keep Sedona Beautiful works to fulfill its mission in the face of an ever changing cultural and economic landscape.

 
altFew Choctaws from the early 1800s are better known than Pushmataha. He negotiated several well-publicized treaties with the United States, led Choctaws in support of the Americans during the War of 1812, is mentioned in nearly all histories of the Choctaws, is buried in the Congressional Cemetery in Washington, D.C., and, in April 2001, a new Pushmataha portrait was unveiled to hang in the Hall of Fame of the State of Mississippi in the Old Capitol Museum in Jackson, Mississippi. Early twentieth-century ethnologist John Swanton referred to Pushmataha as the greatest of all Choctaw chiefs.
 
What is known about him suggests that Pushmataha was an exceptional man and charismatic leader. He had deep roots in the ancient Choctaw world, a world characterized by spiritual power and traditional notions of culture. In addition, Pushmataha effectively confronted a rapidly changing era caused by the ever-expanding European and American presence.
