Reaching into a stash this week for my Thursday Doors entry. I’m pulling out a 1907, Classical Revival at 112 West 4th Street in Sedalia, Missouri.
Currently this well-kept charmer is housing meetings for the American Red Cross, a local law office and an appraisal service. If there are more offices, I appologize that I don’t have that information.
Besides being old enough to be on the National Register, it would have seen the 1st US federal corrupt election practices law passed on January 26, 1907. I’m not rattling any political flags, just sharing one fact of the year it was built. You know, being it houses a law firm 🙂
I’m confident that these aren’t the original doors but they are attractive with the entrance.
So much of our past is right before us and today I’d like to share some of my family’s. In August of 2017 I showed you our local Municipal Building that shares the city’s police department as well as some other city offices. I won’t show that photo but at the time I was unaware we’d be seeing changes.
This building sits behind what would have been my Aunt Ida’s property.
We now have an actual police department housed in their own facility. As I stated above, there was once family that owned part of that property and even though it has been gone for many years, the retaining wall was still in place to remind us of those days.
Opening Jan. 2019
I like the appearance of this new addition to our city. They even have covered bays for the officers to park. And it appears they’ve left the old retaining wall from Aunt Ida’s front yard.
Many thanks to the designers on their foresight in leaving some original history as you are creating new. This warms my heart.

I had some time off (10 whole days) and while I didn’t stray too far from home, I did accompany my husband and eldest daughter to Columbia, Missouri for his latest doctor appointment. So of course, you have to stop someplace for a little bite to eat. After all, it’s an hour drive from home.
ABC Chinese Cuisine had just what the doc ordered, an allergen-friendly menu. Such a relief to have a nice, sit-down, well-prepared meal without fear of a spell of after-dinner nausea. Always grateful for the extra efforts these places put forth for their customers.
Above, a chicken and corn soup–extremely rich and filling. On the right, the mandatory egg roll (not g-free, sorry). Not shown are the main entrees. But maybe next time. For future reference, we have an eggroll recipe coming up in a later post that Is g-free and I have tasted it! So delish!!
No outside door view this writing. Small parking lot and lack of a better angle are my excuses. But we admired their collection they have on display here in the breezeway entrance and throughout.
