This is a reminder of life during the late 1800's where railroad robberies were a major issue and criminals rule the west. It is interesting to learn about America's most famous criminal.

I was surprised at how small the Jesse James home was. It was interesting to see the displayed items of the time period.

Granted there isn't much to see here but there is enough to attract a true Jesse James fan. He didn't stick around in one place for long and anything he touched is valuable. For a museum that relies on gifts and donations there are limited...More
