Sedalia is a small Front Range town located 30 miles south of Denver off HWY 85. With a quaint and historic downtown, Sedalia is surrounded by classic Colorado beauty.
The town resides at 5,840 feet in Douglas County. At the time of 2010 the little town had a population of only 206. There’s been a Sedalia Post Office in town since 1872, with a zip code of 80135. It drew its name from Sedalia, Missouri.
Cherokee Ranch & Castle – Although not open to the public, Cherokee Ranch & Castle is a popular destination for those planning a wedding or large group event. The main draw is the ranch’s Scottish-style castle, perched atop a hill, where it houses 15th and 16th European art pieces.
Daniels Park – Listed on the National Registrar of Historic Places, Daniels Park borders Sedalia and Castle Pines. As a Denver Mountain Park, it offers expansive views of the Front Range and a chance to see a herd of bison. In fact, recently, $3.6 million was spent realigning the park for better viewing of the bison.
Downtown Sedalia – Blink and you might miss Sedalia’s main street. Where the past meets the present, downtown Sedalia offers a few local restaurants, antique shops, and the historic Sedalia Museum. For a quick burger head to Bud’s Cafe and Bar and for a more classic sit-down meal check out Gabriel’s Restaurant and Tuscan Bar.
While the town itself does not offer much in terms of outdoor recreation activities, it serves as the gateway to many surrounding outdoor adventures. Enjoy hiking and biking in the Pike National Forest or fly fishing in Platte River.
