Long Description:
This one says, "Carl Richards constructed this building in 1947 as his blacksmith shop. At the time, auto garage work was just a sideline. Richards is known as Sedona's first 'fire chief' because he kept the town's first fire truck in his garage. If there was a fire, someone had to find carl to get the keys. The building also served as a community hall for town meetings and dances."
