This article is presented in partnership with Visit Sedalia.

Whether you visit Sedalia during the Missouri State Fair, the Scott Joplin Ragtime Festival, the Pow-Wow, or any of the other unique events going on year-round, it is sure to be a memorable time.

There are several attractions to visit but perhaps one of the most interesting is Bothwell Lodge State Historic Site. The lodge sits atop a bluff with a breathtaking autumn view. The early twentieth-century home features twelve thousand square feet and thirty-one rooms and was built above two caves by Sedalia lawyer John Homer Bothwell. Original period furnishings are a highlight. Visitors to this state historic site can also enjoy hiking and biking trails on the property.

To round out your visit, stop by the Sedalia Katy Depot and the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art. And, keep an eye to the sky and you might just catch the B-2 Stealth Bomber hovering overhead from Whiteman Air Force Base.
