This is a small monument at the intersection of hi ways 50 & 65. Um, not the most friendly place to visit. Quality construction, lousy, noisy location.

This is a beautiful monument to the history of the area. It makes you wish for just a moment you could witness the actual event.

Right at the corner of the state fairgrounds on 16th street and 65 highway, you can't miss it. It's beautifully put together.

A wonderful example of a community effort to honor the history of the cowboy and the railroad and its impact on Sedalia. Katy trail riders should divert the 1/4 mile or so to visit.

It took some time to raise the money for this. Right at the corner of 65 Highway and 16th street, it is also the corner of the Missouri State Fair Grounds. A great symbol of the fair and the Midwest flair. Don't miss it!
