Discovered by Europeans in the early 1900s, the town was named after the wife of Theodore Carlton Schnebly. Many view it as an area of great spiritual value, as did the American Indians.

Courthouse Butte

Art Prints

 Courthouse Butte
Located next to Bell Rock in the Village of Oak Creek, Courthouse Butte is often ignored. According to local legend, nearby Cathedral Rock  was supposed to be called Courthouse Butte, and Courthouse Butte was supposed to be called Church Rock, because of its close proximity to Bell Rock and its church bell symmetry. However a mapmaker in the 1800’s mislabeled the formations and the names became part of history. However, there are no mistakes in life, or coincidences, Courthouse Butte is appropriately named. 
It has become an area where people come to deal with past transgressions and forgive themselves of past deeds. 
However this fabulous rock formation got its name, it is one Sedona landscape point of interest you won’t want to miss.
