Sedalia Attractions

Sedalia, Queen City of the Prairie,  is the home of the Missouri State Fair and the Scott Joplin Ragtime Festival.  Pettis County suffered during the Civil War from both regular military action and guerrilla activity.  Early cattle drives terminated here before the railheads moved further west.
