Only in Sedona

It’s tough to believe that in the 1970s, Sedona was a tiny town with a single stoplight. Most of the land was open range, but Nevada businessman Abe Miller saw potential in the area. He was also a lover of Mexican culture, and dedicated himself to creating the vibe of Old Mexico right in Sedona after he fell in love with the town during vacations. Tlaquepaque blends his love of perfection and sheer beauty.

He created a space where artists could craft right in front of visitors, welcoming them to live on-site. It’s how artists were nurtured in Mexico, and he knew it could work in Sedona. Named after a Mexican city in Guadalajara, it’s part of what helped Sedona thrive into the arts-loving city it is today.
