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).

The Trails End committee worked very hard and sponsored many fund raising projects to realize this tremendous addition that honors the days of the cattle drives to the railhead in Sedalia, MO.in the 1800's. Many of the cattle came as far away as Texas. Definitely...More

Missouri State Fair grounds long had needed some sort of a feature as a welcoming site. They came up with a spectacular and very photographic display at the northeast corner of the fairgrounds. Very nice.
