"Town With the Fair" Sedalia by BruceDunning

Sedalia Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 30 photos

Decorative buildings from the Heh day

This is the Public Library. It was built in 1901, and the first in Missouri to get a Carnegie grant to fund the construction. There are many old buildings form the late 1800's to early 1900's, when times must have boomed better.

Still standing tall

The power and pride form the older days in early 1900's is reflected in the architecture of the buildings.

Churches of Missouri Limestone

There are a number of large and decorative architecturally churches in the downtown area. Some are closed now, due to lack of funds to maintain them, and drop off of constituents.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nice old ornate buildings and homes
  • Cons:A presence of poor living conditions for many in town
  • In a nutshell:A nice place to look around and go to the fair

    I have never heard of this city, but it seems interesting.

    Love the Victorian charm of this place. Nothing better than a good hamburger joint! Amen to that! Excellent page Bruce. I so enjoy these of the beat places. Keep them coming!
