Zeb and Soapy Smith Duck Visit Sedalia, Colorado

Sedalia, community of about 200 people, south of Denver, is an old railroad town.   Today many of the old historic buildings are still there.   This museum is very nice.

The museum opened soon

It was closed when we arrived, but did open before we left town.   The museum also hosts the Girl Scout project, the Caboose Library.

Red Caboose Library is a great project

This is a free library.   The sign says to take a book and leave a book.   Next to the museum is a Douglas County Historical Landmark, the Sedalia Fire Station.

Fire Stations are very important in these towns

This fire station was completed in 1933.

Isn't this a great sign?

Zeb and Soapy really like this fire alarm.

Isn’t this great?   We love it!   The red container held fire retardant, used to help put out fires.

Humans, animals or vehicles could pull this cart.   Any way to get it to the fire.     The Different Drummer antique store is really nice.   The grounds are so neat and we love these tulips.

We admired the cow, goose and hay wagon, but our favorite was the man with a red scarf leaning against the post with the bell.

Wandering down the main street, we noticed the Community Market.

Great bench in front of the building.   Bud’s Bar is a favorite hangout.

Great hamburgers are served in here.   A fine dining establishment, Gabriel’s, has a beautiful patio.

Diners can sit here and enjoy the beautiful mountains, while enjoying wonderful food.   Around the corner, we discovered the General Store.

Love the roof decoration

We love this place.   Sedalia is a friendly, historic town and we enjoyed walking around.   But, mountain sunshine and fresh air, often requires a snack.   Comadres looked inviting, and was recommended by the lady at the museum, so we entered.

Let's go to Comardes!

So many flavors of ice cream.   We wanted to try them all, but we bought black cherry and Hawaiian ice cream.   The black cherry was fabulous!

YUM!!

YUM!!

The Hawaiian ice cream had bits of coconut and bits of macadamia nuts.   We ate at a table outside enjoying the wonderful weather and the great ice cream.   I think Hawaiian ice cream is my new favorite!
