Prior to their regular meeting on Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors and the County Manager's
Office helda short celebration to honor the history and heritage of Coconino County. The Supervisors
and County Manager Cynthia Seelhammer took turns reading highlights from the County's history
and sharing personal stories of connection, complete with period clothing. Refreshments commonly
found in 1891 were served, and a celebratory cake and cupcakes were shared with County employees
in the afternoon.

The County was founded on February 19, 1891 and the first meeting of a Board of Supervisors
was held April 1, 1891.
