Smith-Cotton High School

$20.00

Erected in 1924, Smitton Cotton High School has been a timeless gift from Sedalia's founding family. Sarah Smith-Cotton and Martha Smith, daughters of Sedalia's founder George R. Smith, donated the tracat of land which housed the family home for the school.  The School was erected on the south side of the home.  Popular Sedalia architecht T. W. Bast designed the stately building, along with William Ittner.  Upon her death, Mrs. Cotton left instructins for the home to be razed, enabling Smith Cotton's campus to grow.  Smith Cotton stands regally on one of the highest points (920feet) in mid missouri and has seen multiple generations pass through her doors.
