See the home of Jesse James. Bullet hole in the wall. Lots of history to go along with. I highly recommend you check out this local museum.

House is only 4 rooms. It doesn't take a long time to go thru but packed with lots of items, pictures and stories. We learned so much about the James boys and the events leading up to Jesse's death. Worth the stop!

It's really neat to go inside this home. If you are going to the Pattee house museum then you need to go here also. I love history so if you love history diffently try this.

I love history and learning, so I was pleased to find that I learned something about JJ that I didn't know. I read a prophecy in the Patee House, next door, in the ballroom about how he thought he would be killed. That made it...More

Lots of great articles and artifacts from the life of Jesse James and his family. I didn't know they had exhumed his body for DNA testing. It gives a nice lil snapshot of his life. Great pictures.

This little museum is adjacent to the Patee House Museum. I highly recommend both of them. Both are filled with history. This is the house Jesse and his wife lived in at the time of his demise. There are period correct artifacts and items which...More

I think the Chamber of Commerce may have had pamphlets. The Patee Museum had a lot of brochures and I am sure they had one on this one.
