Such a beautiful monument! And I like the cattle. My grandkids watch for it every time we are in town. :-) Great addition to the state fair.

Tribute to the cattle drive and cowboys. We happened upon the monument, it had not been on our road trip itinerary. But often Little is as we meander, look at post cards, and visit tourism offices. This monument should be heavily promoted. I found this...More

This welcome display for the state Fair is really cool. It showcases Sedalia's history as a cattle drive destination and rail head. Very well done.

There isn't a lot to see or do but the monument is still worth a visit. When it is open, anyone can walk through the drover car and play around on the engine (it's a train and buried time capsule).
