Description
Gen. George R. Smith bought 1,000 acres along the Pacific Railroad right of way for $13 per acre in 1857, and named the town he platted Sedville in honor of his daughter Sarah, whom he affectionately referred to as Sed. Three years later Smith filed a larger plat that included Sedville and named the new town Sedalia.
In June one of the best-known ragtime composers is saluted at the Scott Joplin Ragtime Festival. The products of Missouri's fields and factories are showcased at the State Fair, held in August.
A trailhead leading to Katy Trail State Park is just east of town.
