Surrounding Community

In 1865 Sedalia was known as Round Corral, named simply for a corral of that shape. By 1871, people had begun to refer to the town as Plum, after the trees and their fragrant fruit. And in the spring of 1872, its first Postmaster, who just happened to hail from Missouri-specifically Sedalia, Missouri, proffered the town’s third and current name.

Sedalia, Colorado is a quaint little town – but it offers you the best of all possible worlds. Peace, quiet and all the room and time imaginable one moment – very closely followed by everything the bigger city nearby has to offer. Twenty minutes to the office, thirty to your favorite restaurant, latest show, or the big game. Shop at Park Meadows, commute to Denver International Airport, or be on the tee at Castle Pines nearly as quickly as you load the clubs in the car.
