This book chronicles Sedalia’s transformation from a rugged prairie town to the home of the Missouri State Fair and host to the international Scott Joplin Ragtime Festival. The city’s history is illustrated through more than 200 vintage images, many previously unpublished showing the people, places, and events that shaped the town.
“Images of America is an ambitious collection of chronicles that accurately capture the essence of what gives each American small town, neighborhood, and downtown its unique flavor. Each one is penned by a seasoned local expert and features hundreds of vintage images, local memories, personal stories, and unique points of view in regards to a variety of iconic events. At present, the series encompasses thousands of volumes and counting.” —Arcadia Publishing
